Morocco 2-0 Comoros Islands: Wins sees Vahid Halilhodzic’s side reach AFCON last 16

Morocco proved too strong for the Comoros Islands at the Africa Cup of Nations, winning 2-0 to stay top of Group C and ensure progress to the last 16 of the finals.

Selim Amallah scored after 16 minutes and Zakaria Aboukhlal struck on the final whistle to ensure the win, after Youssef En-Nesyri had a penalty saved.

The score should have been significantly more one-sided had Morocco taken all their chances as they overwhelmed the tournament debutants at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium.
