A victory snatched in the final seconds with grit and heart by the Moroccan internationals against the Algerian team.
A few minutes from the end of regulation time, Morocco was trailing 27 to 25. Morocco’s opponents already thought they were the winners before being overthrown.
In less than 2 minutes, a Moroccan comeback reduced the gap, equalized and during a final breakthrough on the left side and offered the victory in extremis to the national team.
