CHAN 2018 final: Morocco, Nigeria began February 4 assemblage
Both sides came through tough semifinals on Wednesday evening: Morocco needed extra time to overcome a resilient Libya 3-1 in their North African derby in Casablanca, while Nigeria edged Sudan 1-0 in a hard-fought clash in Marrakech.
Ayoub Kaabi capitalized on defensive error in the Nigeria's six-yard box to score the fourth goal for Morocco.
The Eagles threatened briefly as the half wore on, but Morocco soon shot ahead after a slick move put Abdeljalil Jbira free down the left flank, his brilliant pullback from the by-line swept home by Zakaria Hadraf. Walid El Karti scored the second goal at the 61st minute of the game, while Hadraf scored a third one at the 64th minute.
NIGERIA will need to overcome a passionate home crowd as they look to win their first ever African Nations Championship in Morocco.
The 2018 African Nations Championship, known as the Total African Nations Championship (also referred to as CHAN 2018) will be the 5th edition of the biennial football competition.
- Previously unknown striker Ayoub el Kaabi was named player of the tournament after scoring a CHAN record nine goals in five starts.
