102 mins: Ansu Fati’s introduction has added an injection of pace into Spain’s attack. He tries to get around Achraf Hakimi but is blocked off. Alvaro Morata then whips in a cross but it’s headed clear.

99 mins: Nearly! Nico Williams shuffles away from a tackle on the right wing then lifts a decent cross into the box but the ball is too high for Alvaro Morata who looks for the header.

It drops over the top of him and Morocco clear their lines.

Luis Enrique makes a double change taking off Dani Olmo and Jordi Alba in favour of Alejandro Balde and Ansu Fati.

96 mins: Jordi Alba’s low ball into the box from the left flies by Carlos Soler and Morocco work the ball away. It comes to Sofyan Amrabat who threads a beautiful through ball up the pitch and gets Walid Cheddira in on goal.

The forward carries the ball into the box but holds onto it too long allowing Aymeric Laporte to get back and poke the ball away from him.

Huge chance for Morocco and it goes begging.

90+5 mins: Dani Olmo has a late chance to win it for Spain. He takes a free kick from the left side of the pitch and sends it towards goal. There’s an awkward bounce just before Bono but the goalkeeper turns it away!

Goalless. Good defending from Morocco and a lack of creativity from Spain means that no goals were scored in the 90 minutes and the match is heading to extra-time.

Can one of the teams win it before a penalty shootout?

Free kick Spain.
