Cole declares Amrabat 'unbelievable' for Morocco win

Former Chelsea star Joe Cole described Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat's performance against Spain for Morocco as outstanding.

The North African nation remarkably reached the quarter finals of the World Cup on Tuesday.

Morocco defeated Spain on penalties, with the game finishing 0-0 after extra time.

Former England international Cole spoke on ITV post-game: "Amrabat, outstanding.

“As good a holding midfielder we've seen at the tournament in terms of defensive instinct.

"The two centre halves, heroes - four centre halves as they both had to come off - and they still was there, unbelievable performance."
