Canada vs. Morocco: Time, TV channel, preview and how to watch FIFA World Cup match

The Canadians will try to make a graceful exit from Qatar 2022.

It's the end of the line for Canada, but Morocco will hope for a result to see them through to the round of 16 as the teams meet on Thursday.

The Canadians showed well in their first match at a World Cup in 36 years when they pushed Belgium to the brink in a 1-0 loss to open their tournament, and they managed to score their first-ever goal at this level just 68 seconds into their match against Croatia. But a Croatian masterclass for the remainder of that game saw the North Americans eliminated after a 4-1 loss, and now Canada will be playing for pride and the possibility of earning their first-ever point.

Meanwhile, Morocco enter the match tied with the aforemention Croatians atop Group F with four points, meaning a draw will be good enough to secure advancement to the knockouts for the African side. If they pull it off, the Moroccans would be playing knockout-round football at a World Cup for the first time since 1986.

Designed to resemble a traditional taqiyah hat worn by men and boys in the Middle East, the stadium holds 40,000 seats. It officially opened in October 2021, and hosted six FIFA Arab Cup 2021 matches.
