A major thunderbolt.. Morocco bids farewell to the nations of Africa

The Moroccan national team lost to its counterpart, the South African national team, 2-0, and exited the African Cup of Nations in the round of 16.

“The Boys” took the lead in the 57th minute through Evinds Makgoba, amid shock from all observers, given the clear best performance of the Atlas Lions in the first half.

Morocco wasted a barrage of opportunities after that, until Ayoub El Kaabi won a penalty kick, which Ashraf Hakimi had to kick.

The Paris Saint-Germain star, in a strange way, shot a powerful ball that hit the crossbar and went out of the goal, continuing South Africa’s advantage.

In the 90th minute, Sofiane Amrabat interfered with the South African striker, receiving a red card, and from the same mistake, Teboho Mokoena succeeded in scoring the second goal, killing Morocco’s hopes of a comeback.

With Morocco’s exit, the Arab participation in the African Cup ends in the round of 16, after Egypt exits with a loss to Congo on penalties, then Mauritania loses to Cape Verde 1-0.

There is no doubt that the early exit of the Walid Regragui battalion represents a surprise that joins the many surprises of CAN, the most prominent of which is the defeat of defending champion Senegal by Côte d’Ivoire on penalties on Monday.
