AFCON 2023: Morocco Secure Comfortable Win Against 10-Man Tanzania

Atlas Lions of Morocco made light work of 10-man Tanzania with a comfortable 3-0 win in their opening game in Group F of the AFCON 2023.

Morocco is among the top favourites tipped to win this year’s tournament in Côte d’Ivoire.

The first and only time Morocco won the AFCON was in 1976 in Ethiopia.

Romain Saiss gave Morocco the lead in the 30th minute.

    Nigeria lauers should watch congo players, all of them na professionals in big clubs in Europe. This congo guys dey play Ball, from defenders to attacker na dribbler. Energy, tireless players. Alex Iwobi should be more strong and rugged to Ivorian players, this is Africa football not English football. If Nigeria players don’t put ruggedity in this Afcom, omo next available flight

    Safe to say if this tournament ends today Morocco and Senegal will most likely play the final. Others are Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Algeria and Mali in that order. DR Congo looks good too. Anything can happen but those two are the teams to beat in this tournament. Morocco doesn’t even look like they’re in second gear yet. I hope our players can raise their games starting from tomorrow. At worst a draw, we must do everything not to lose.
