CAN 2021: Morocco win the round of 16 after their victory against the Comoros

Morocco booked their place in the knockout stages of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations with a 2-0 win over Comoros in Group C on Friday.

After beating Ghana 1-0 in their opening match, the Moroccans put in an impressive performance in all departments except their finishing as they missed a handful of chances.

Selim Amallah’s first-half strike looked set to prove the game’s only goal until Zakaria Aboukhlal’s VAR gave in an effort a minute from time to finally clinch the points.

Comoros, playing in their first AFCON, were beaten 1-0 by Gabon in their opener and their need to take at least a point in their second game made it an open encounter, even after Amallah fired through a host of bodies after good work from PSG star Achraf Hakimi to open the scoring in the 18th minute.

The victory means Malawi sit in third place with three points and only one point behind Guinea and Senegal.
