Croatia were forced to a 0-0 draw by a resolute Moroccan side at the Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor on Wednesday morning, reports PNO Sports.

It was the third goalless draw of the competition.

There were just attempts on target from both teams in a match played in searing desert heat.

Morocco have now lost just two of their last 41 games across a three-year spell.

Croatia on the other hand extended their own unbeaten run to seven games.

Belgium and Canada will meet in the other Group F game later in the day.
