SPAIN are eliminated from the World Cup after losing to Morocco on penalties.
The 2010 champions struggled to crush the last remaining African nation in Qatar.
On the other hand, Walid Cheddira will feel like he could have had an upset win in regulation time but missed three big chances.
After a scoreless 90 minutes, this tense duel went into extra time where Spain made the most of the race, looking for a last-second winner.
Pablo Sarabia’s volley hit the post in the third minute of added time as the game went to penalties.
The late substitute then hit the post with Spain’s first try on penalties before Carlos Soler saw his try saved.
Sergio Busquets also missed before the Spaniard Achraf Hakimi sealed the 3-0 with a dink.
