Around ten people were detained in Brussels after uproars erupted following Morocco’s 2-0 victory over Belgium at the World Cup in Qatar, according to the Belgium-based RTBF telecaster.
Following Belgium’s defeat, a small group set fire to garbage cans and threw stones at vehicles in the heart of Brussels on Sunday. According to media reports, police used water guns and nerve gas, and there were casualties.
In Belgium, disturbances were reported during the Sunday riots. Prior to that, late goals by Abdelhamid Sabiri and Zakaria Aboukhlal led Morocco to a 2-0 victory over Belgium in a Gathering F match played here at Al Thumama Arena.
This was yet another surprise for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Following his team’s defeat in Morocco, Belgium administrator Roberto Martinez stated that the opponents’ primary goal had a significant impact on the outcome and that his team failed to convert their possibilities into objectives.
