The Moroccan community on Ibiza and its football fans experienced a historic day of total celebration for the sport of the Alawite country on Tuesday. The elimination of the Spanish national team on penalties against Morocco in the round of 16 of the World Cup Qatar 2022 last night unleashed madness in the streets of the neighborhood of Ses Figueretes.

World Cup joy and euphoria

In its promenade and streets, where a large Morocccan population resides, euphoria and joy overflowed at the end of the World Cup qualifiers, with a colorful flood of around 500 Moroccan fans wearing their national team’s jerseys and scarves, carrying their country’s flag and red flares that lit up the celebrations of the North African fans. The North African country’s fans spontaneously unleashed their joy at the historic milestone achieved by Morocco, which had so far only played in the round of 16 of the World Cup and had failed to advance further in the competition. Therefore, after eliminating Spain against all odds, this edition of the tournament in Qatar becomes the first time in the history of World Cups that the Moroccans will be able to enjoy the success of playing in a quarter-final round.
