Now “Bono” & Hakimi Keep Morocco's World Cup Dream Alive – BBN Times

Morocco has become the first ever Arab and North African team to reach the World Cup quarterfinals. 
After today’s brilliant but shocking Morocco PK win over former World Cup champions Spain (2010), Wikipedia known as the largest and most-read reference work in history, reported for a short time: “Yassine Bounou (born 5 April 1991), also known as Bono, is a Moroccan professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for La Liga club Sevilla and the Morocco national team. He is the King of Spain.”
Of course, he really isn’t the “King of Spain” but his heroics as goalkeeper in helping to beat Spain, has earned him that royal sobriquet. The PK saves by Bono, who was actually born in Montreal to Moroccan parents, set up defender Hakimi to clinch the win as he coolly chipped his penalty kick down the middle of the goal, a spot the Spanish goalie had vacated.
So, Morocco advances to the World Cup quarter finals against Portugal, and heavily favored Spain goes home—along with other highly ranked teams like Germany and Belgium.
If Hakimi got the actual Moroccan winner, here’s the skinny on Yassine “Bono” Bounou, whose club team is Sevilla in Spain: “Bono has never acted like a star,” and he has made his way up through desire and hard work. Born in Montreal, Canada, he moved with his family back to Morocco when he was eight and played through the youth system at Wydad, Casablanca, where he became one of the youngest Moroccan players to feature in a CAF Champions League final. He later won the 2019-20 Europa League Cup Final with his present club team Sevilla.
BBN Times and Casablanca-born publisher Badr Berrada proudly says,“ Bono is simply incredible!” Indeed, Berrada notes that Morocco has only conceded one goal at the World Cup and adds, “I am so proud of Bono. From Wydad Casablanca, my favorite team in Morocco, to Fc Sevilla, he is a hard-working honest man. He made some good saves to keep Morocco alive during the game. He also bravely saved penalty kicks from Carlos Soler and Sergio Busquets. Also, defender Hakimi delivered a solid performance despite playing injured. He is simply world class, scoring the decisive penalty.” Berrada also has some possible transfer rumor, suggesting, “Bono is looking for a new club this summer, he wants a new challenge.”
Wow, so, Morocco is in the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time. And Bono and the Atlas Lions will hope to keep their incredible run going on Saturday when they face Portugal.
Congrats to Morocco & Hakimi
Bono, Hakimi et Le Maroc…allez, allez!
Bono is living the dream. What a keeper !!!
Apparently, he may be looking for a bigger club…bon chance!
Morocco looks unstoppable ;)
They’re on Portugal, England and France’s side of the draw.
Absolute Class from Hakimi and Bono
So true, what entertainment, eh?
This Moroccan team was underrated from the start of the tournament!
No one will under-rate them now.
Sofyan Amrabat looked really good tonight. Next Spurs player.
Hey, Bobby, I also like Hakimi but he’s with PSG already. COYS.
Congrats Morocco, their defence is incredible!
Very well coached and hard working!
Awesome display of talent
The World Cup brings out the best, how about Brazil’s samba football.
Brilliant performance from Morocco. Respect Hakimi for stepping up to the challenge.
Panenka shows poise.
Congrats Morocco. Well deserved. We will beat you in the semi finals.
Jay, we have to get past world champs France, first, eh?
These guys will be legends in their country for the rest of their lives!
Never have to buy dinner, again.
So happy for Morocco
Allez, Allez Le Maroc!
Well deserved Morocco
Hard fought and well deserved!
Bono’s performance on the penalties was insane. Not one Spanish penalty went in. Massive congratulations to Morocco.
Were they psyched out?
Amrabat is a warrior, Bono “Man of the Match”. Morocco has the strongest defence of the tournament. I am eating Couscous tomorrow, not Paella.
Good choice, mate!
