A mother’s love 

Moroccan defender Achraf Hakimi scored the winning penalty in a nail-biting match against Spain at the 2022 World Cup, securing his country’s place in the quarter-finals for the first time. Then he captured fans’ hearts as he ran to embrace his mother after the final whistle.  

Although born in Spain and growing up in Madrid, Hakimi told Spanish TV program, El Chiringuito, his upbringing was heavily influenced by his Moroccan culture. Hakimi could have played for Spain, but chose Morocco.
