Dalic saw his side come back from Alphonso Davies' early strike - the Canadians' first goal at the men's finals tournament - to win the Group F encounter at the Khalifa International Stadium 4-1 on Sunday. Before the match, the Croatia head coach had urged his opposite number to show some respect after Herdman told his players to make life uncomfortable for their opponents in industrial language. Herdman revealed he told his players "go and 'eff' Croatia" in an on-pitch huddle following their hard-fought defeat to Belgium in their World Cup opener on Wednesday.

Regragui steered his country to arguably the greatest win in their World Cup finals history, just three months after stepping in as coach after predecessor Vahid Halilhodzic was sacked.

Morocco head into their final Group F match against Canada on four points, a return after two matches that they could scarcely have dreamed of before the tournament started.
