Morocco defeats Ghana in Africa Cup of Nations Group C with Boufal’s late goal.

Morocco

faced

Ghana

on the opening day of Group C at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo on Monday, which wasn’t what the fans expected from both sides but finally ended with Morocco’s 1-0 victory, which was gained by

Sofiane Boufal's

late strike.

The

Atlas Lions

seemed satisfied with the draw, just like their oppositions, the

Black Stars

, who didn’t seem so determined to change the result, but in the 83rd minute of the game, Boufal made the difference for Morocco and helped them leave the match with three points.

Both sides showed poor performances in the first half, and the only serious scoring opportunity was wasted by Morocco captain

Romain Saiss

who nodded Boufal’s cross over the bar a few minutes before the end of the first 45 minutes of the game.

In the second half, Ghana started the game with more enthusiasm, but it didn’t make a difference in the game’s quality as they failed to create chances, and the only time they challenged Morocco’s goalkeeper

Yassine Bounou

was in the 72nd minute when he made a good save denying

Joseph Paintsil's

measured right-foot shot around the post.
