President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria has been spotted alongside Joe Biden and other world leaders, watching Morocco versus France at the 2022 World Cup.

The world leaders had taken some time off their deliberations for the US-Africa leaders’ summit to watch the world cup.

A photo shared by US president Joe Biden showed him in the company of president George Weah (Liberia) and Muhammadu Buhari (Nigeria).

In a social media post, President Biden commended the Moroccan team saying he was proud of their performance despite their 2-0 defeat.

Morocco broke the glass ceiling by becoming the only African or Arab country to reach the semi-finals of a World Cup.

The course of Achraf Hakimi and his teammates throughout the competition in Qatar earned them an entry “in the pantheon of soccer,” the French newspaper L’Economiste said.

However, the Moroccan odyssey is not quite over yet as the Atlas Lions will play on Saturday in the Third place match against Croatia to reach the podium.
