AFCON 2021: Central African Republic 0-2 Morocco

Central African Republic 0-2 Morocco

Morocco remained unbeaten in Group E with a 2-0 win over Central African Republic, in a game that was played in the Cameroonian city of Douala.

Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech scored six minutes before half-time as he floated in a freekick from the right-hand side, Nayef Aguerd rose as if to head the ball but it evaded everyone to end up in the back of the net.

Ziyech then turned provider for the second goal which was scored in injury time, as he squared the ball for Youssef En Neysri to put into an empty net after a ruthlessly fast counter-attack by the Atlas Lions.

The result means that Morocco are top of the group with 10 points and need only a draw from their final two games to qualify for the finals.
