Morocco Cruise To Victory Over Tanzania In AFCON

2022 World Cup semi-finalists, Morocco, cruised to a 3-nil win over 10-man Tanzania in San Pedro yesterday as they opened their Africa Cup of Nations Group F campaign.

Captain Romain Saiss scored in the first half and, after Tanzania had Novatus Miroshi sent off, Azzedine Ounahi and Youssef En-Nesyri netted for the Atlas Lions.

The victory over group outsiders Tanzania in the southwest of the Ivory Coast was anticipated as Morocco are ranked 13th in the world, 108 places above the Taifa Stars.

Morocco, who are seeking a second Cup of Nations title 48 years after lifting the trophy in Ethiopia, sprang to international prominence two years ago in Qatar when they became the first African World Cup semi-finalists after eliminating Spain and Portugal in knockout matches.
