The Moroccan team, seeking its second title in its history after 1976, raised its score to 6 points from two wins, three points ahead of Gabon, which faces Ghana later, while El Kemary suffered his second loss in a row in his first continental participation.
The “Atlas Lions” outperformed the strong Ghana with a clean goal, while the Comoros team lost to its Gabonese counterpart 0-1.
The Bosnian Moroccan coach, Wahid Halilhodzic, made three substitutions compared to the squad that played the previous match. He put Fiorentina player Sufian Amrabat in the defensive center, “Focus”, instead of Sami Mayi, and Gent’s wing, Belgian Tariq Tisodale, instead of Azzedine Onahi, and Hatay Sport striker Ayub Al Kaabi as head Bayonet in the place of Zakaria Boukhall.
Comoros coach Amir Abdo played a defensive lineup, as he relied on players active in French clubs from the second and third tiers, as well as captain Youssef Amchangama, midfielder Gangan, and striker Alferdo Bennabohan, star of the Serbian Red Star club.
After the match, Moroccan striker Ayoub Kaabi said in a television statement that his country had not achieved anything yet, adding: “There are no big or small teams in Africa, and any team that qualifies becomes equal with the rest of the teams.”
He continued: “We performed well, but we lacked the attacking tendency, and we must continue to work because nothing has been achieved yet. We must qualify for the final price while we are at the top of the group by winning the next match against Gabon.”
