Others described these clips as the most beautiful videos of the World Cup 2022.

In the midst of the Moroccan national team’s celebration of the historic qualification for the quarter-finals of the World Cup at the expense of Spain, in the final round, everyone was surprised when Walid Regragui, the coach of the Moroccan national team, went up to the stands in order to kiss his mother’s head.
Regragui repeated the same thing after the historic qualification and passage to the semi-finals, after beating Portugal with a clean goal.

Achraf Hakimi is always grateful to his mother
Moroccan player Achraf Hakimi many times has expressed gratitude for the role of his mother in his life. He repeated the matter on more than one occasion, most of which was against Spain, after he rose after the end of his celebration with his colleagues, in order to kiss his mother’s head, the last of which was in front of Portugal.
Achraf Hakimi ignited the World Cup with a shot of his ascent to the stands and celebration with her, after the Belgium match in the second round of the group stage, after which he wrote, “I love you, mother,” through his Twitter account, publishing a picture with her, and the ascent was repeated after qualifying again for the quarter-finals.
Hakimi many times expressed his gratitude for his mother’s role as she worked as a maid in homes in order to provide a living and the funds necessary to go to training and muscle building, which was difficult for them at that time, so he would not miss an opportunity without acknowledging her thanks to him, and being with him on all occasions.
