It is another freakish story during this World Cup so far, along with Gareth Southgate dislocating his shoulder and a dancing bear celebrating Russia's opening win. Whatever happens in Spain's final group match against Morocco, the Iranians know that a win over Portugal will see them into the round of 16.

Being on loan in Spain last season, the Watford winger played in the second Morocco's Group B match on Wednesday against Portugal, just after a period of five days of the head injury.

"We didn't get the goals we should have had but we're here in Moscow and it felt like we were playing in Casablanca. Then they take their responsibilities and the player also takes his own responsibilities".

"Amrabat returned to action too soon according to medical guidelines", said the union.

Amrabat spent a night in hospital after a 72nd-minute clash of heads with Iran's Vahid Amiri in St Petersburg on Friday. I can't even remember the beginning of the game before the incident.

Ronaldo that year went on to Ballon d'Or honors, being named the best player in the world for his efforts helping United win the Premier League that season in an historic double. "Totally gone. When you think about it, it is a little bit scary".

The chairman of FIFA's medical committee, Michel D'Hooghe, said he would seek an explanation from Morocco's medical team.

"There is one thing I am sure of is that the whole Moroccan people are very proud of its team", coach Herve Renard said Wednesday after losing to Portugal.

The FIFA guidelines recommend six days of rest for a player who suffers concussion.

Federation Internationale de Football Association have not issued statement on the incident so far.

The Professional Footballers' Association have questioned whether there is any goal to Fifa's concussion protocol after Morocco openly flouted guidelines without any sanction and there was then a third World Cup controversy on Friday over the reaction to a head injury.
