CHAN 2018: Nigeria, Morocco Gun For Glory

CHAN 2018: Nigeria, Morocco Gun For Glory

The youngster had begun to justify his surprise inclusion ahead of Anthony Okpotu in the first half with a few flashes of his searing pace, but his dismissal left the Super Eagles even more up against it at the start of the second period.

The team finished third four years ago in their debut appearance in South African and failed to progress beyond the group stage in the last edition in Rwanda.

To make it to the final, Morocco were dominant in the first semi-final against Libya with a 3-1 win, a victory that came in extra time.

The destruction of Nigeria created a record winning margin for a CHAN final, bettering the three-goal victories of Tunisia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Austin Ezenwata, who runs a football show in Abakpa Nike, Enugu, said that Nigeria deserved to be in final and hoped that they lifted the trophy. He now serve as Information Technology Officer with Africa's Largest TV Network.

Ayoub El Kaabi and Walid El Karti scored in the extra period after Abdulrahman Khalleefah cancelled out El Kaabi's opener for the hosts in 90 minutes.

To complete the rout, Morocco scored a fourth courtesy of Ayoub El Kaabi who smashed the ball before Ajiboye's foot could rule it out, making the final scoreline 4-0.

"They have two good strikers, they are hard when they are near your goal but we prepared good for this game".

"From the beginning of the tournament we selected players based on their physical conditions and the opponents".

"I believe it won't be long before we win this competition".

After his CHAN exploits, national coach Herve Renard is likely to give the 24-year-old a chance as Morocco prepare to face Iran, Portugal and Spain at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

"However, the truth is that you have raised the expectations of the Government and people of Nigeria back home, and now you just have to do all that it will take to win the Cup".
