Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Édouard Mendy’s “Little Brother” interview!
Morocco got scared. After a heavy defeat conceded against the United States in a friendly match, the Atlas Lions were expected at the turn for their entry into the running in these qualifiers for the 2023 African Cup of Nations. Opposed to South Africa, Achraf Hakimi’s teammates were surprised at the start of the match, conceding the opener for Lyle Foster (8th). Despite a clear domination, Morocco failed to equalize in the first period.

Returning from the locker room, Vahid Halilhodzic’s men finally managed to find the fault thanks to Youssef En Nesery (51st). Morocco pushed for victory and finally managed to get it in the last minutes. Ayoub El Kaabi gave the victory to his team with a superb volley after a cross from Amine Harit (86th). A precious success for the Bosnian coach, under fire from critics for several weeks.
