Cristiano Ronaldo continued his incredible start to the tournament, scoring the goal that saw Portugal eliminate Morocco from the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Following on from his hat-trick against Iberian rivals Spain, it took the Portugal captain only four minutes to make his mark in this game, diving on the end of a cross from Joao Moutinho and heading on target.
That goal put the European Champions top of Group B, with Spain playing Iran at 7pm tonight. Ronaldo has also extended his lead as the top scorer in the race for the Golden Boot.
Morocco, who just last week failed in their bid to host the tournament in 2026, became the first team to be knocked out of this one with one Group B game to spare.
They did, however, create enough chances to earn at least a draw – and would have got it with better finishing in the final third, producing only one effort of note only to see Younes Belhanda’s header denied by Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patricio.
The North African nation, who were beaten 1-0 by Iran in their opening group game, are playing at a FIFA World Cup for the first time in 20 years.
Morocco concludes their tournament against, 2010 World Champions, Spain in Kaliningrad on Monday June 25.
