Jubilant fans poured into the streets of major cities of Morocco after the country reached the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time

The Atlas Lions stunned Spain 3-0 in a shootout after a goalless draw. They will face Portugal on Saturday (15:00 GMT).

“Impossible not Moroccan,” was how the Moroccan Football Federation described the win.

Flares were set off and flags waved in the streets of the capital, Rabat, as cheering, singing and drumming continued deep into the night.

Morocco King Mohammed VI also joined in the street celebrations as he waved a flag while being driven through the streets.

The country becomes the fourth African team to reach the men’s World Cup quarter-finals after Cameroon (1990), Senegal (2002) and Ghana (2010).
