Morocco began the group stage against Ghana with a heavyweight match, but was 1-0 victor thanks to Soufiane Boufal's late strike.

Vahid Halilhodzic has a chance to secure their place in last-16 with one game left. A win would also help to secure top spot in the group, and in theory, a better knockout stage draw.

Morocco vs Comoros: AFCON 2022 - LIVE!

We're now on the Africa Cup of Nations group stage and will be moving to Group C as Morocco and Comoros continue with their campaigns.

Comoros, a tiny island nation ranked No132 by Fifa in the world, is making their first appearance at the AFCON. However, they gave Gabon a serious scare in their first game and lost 1-0.



GOAL! Morocco 1-0 Comoros | Selim Amallah 16'

The breakthrough is here!

Hakimi opens Comoros with a break down of the right, but Morocco is denied by some heroic defending. After one, two and three blocked attempts, the ball finally breaks to Amallah, and he fires through all the bodies to get in.

13 mins: Ugh. The Comoros have responded well to the pressure early on. Hakimi must divert a dangerous cross to Hakimi's left for a corner, but Faiz Semani crosses to grab it and hooks it miles ahead of everyone for a goal-kick.

8 minutes: They've started very strongly, the Moroccans switching the play well. Louza is able to move in from the left and has two red lines waiting in the middle. However, his cross cannot beat the one defender between them.

3 minutes: This is the latest late flag. El Kaabi takes down the right and places Tissoudali in the middle. Mohamed Youssouf controls the camera and then goes to shoot. But eventually, the flag of the linesman goes up.

El Kaabi was offside in the move much earlier and I think we would have been looking at a Morocco penality.
