Morocco's aim was to avoid losing to Croatia in their opening World Cup match on Wednesday and the 0-0 draw they secured was a satisfactory result, coach Walid Regragui said.

"Our goal was to live for another day as defeat in the first match ends your hopes in the competition," Regragui told a post-match news conference.

The draw with the 2018 World Cup runners-up leaves Morocco facing Belgium in Group F on Sunday and then Canada next Thursday, when they could still have the hope of qualifying for the next round.

"We did our best, the goal was not to lose. I've only been here for two months and I'm proud of the players. We wanted to achieve another result, but in the end we are satisfied with the draw," said Regragui, who took over Morocco in September after coach Vahid Halilhodzic was fired.

"We will wait for the outcome of the Belgium match, and then we will look to qualify for the Last 16 against Canada," he said.
