Morocco vs Croatia LIVE: Latest 2022 World Cup scores and goal updates as Luka Modric takes center stage

Group F clash when Luka Modric and the 2018 World Cup runners-up faced Morocco at the Al Bayt Stadium

Croatia face Morocco in their World Cup opener as they bid to repeat their incredible run to the final in 2018.

Luka Modric, who won the Golden Ball in Russia four years ago, will be hoping to give Croatia one last time at the World Cup, with Zlatko Dalić's talent-filled side.

By the way, Walid Reragui's Moroccan side have the potential to upset the tournament, having fallen short of expectations in their run to the quarter-finals at last year's Africa Cup of Nations.

Belgium and Canada are also in Group F, with each of the four teams able to progress to the last 16 of the competition.

Morocco 0-0 Croatia

21st minute: Ziyech is the one to take the set-piece... but the Croatian wall stands in the way.

The 2018 finalist broke the other end - and got a corner from it...

19th minute: Modric brings down Hakimi just outside the penalty area, in the middle of the pitch!

The Croat won the ball but managed to catch Hakimi on the follow-up.

Big chance now for Zieceh or Hakimi...Morocco 0-0 Croatia

18 minutes: Ziyech again tries to provide a pass. The cross was latched in beautifully for En-Nesyri, but the Moroccan striker was unable to make the cut and his header just missed!

minute 17: Woah... so close to Ivan Perisic!

The Tottenham man nailed a 30-yard shot with his left foot... but it just went over the bar!

That looks set to be the top corner - that's going to be the goal of the tournament so far! Good business.

Morocco 0-0 Croatia

13th minute: Ziyech on the right tries to find Youssef En-Nesyri in the box, but it is well countered by Croatian defender Josko Gvardiol, who wore a mask today...

Ziyech then fired in from the edge of the box which was blocked by Dejan Lovren.

Team Africa is just building momentum in this game. The duo of Hakimi and Ziyech on the right have proven fruitful...

8 minutes: The first serious attack from Morocco is stopped at the last second by Lovren in the penalty area, after a beautiful turn of play from Hakim Ziyech.

Nice to see the Chelsea playmaker back playing for his country again...
