After conceding an equaliser, Ziyech came to the fore with two goals in as many minutes. His first came from the penalty spot, a powerful effort that the goalkeeper got hands to but couldn’t keep out.
Moments later, after exchanging passes from a short corner, the forward whipped in a fizzing low effort with that trusty left foot that flew all the way in from the right flank. He was withdrawn for the final 18 minutes with the score 4-1, which is how it finished, leaving Morocco top of the qualification group at the halfway point.
Over 3,000km away in Wolverhampton, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Conor Gallagher started for England Under-21s as they continued their qualification campaign for next summer’s European Championship finals.
