CHAN 2018

Morocco clinch CHAN title after beating 10-man Nigeria 4-0


Morocco claimed their first African Nations Championship (CHAN) title after walloping 10-man Nigeria 4-0 in the final of the competition on Sunday.

Zakaria Hadraf bagged a brace and a goal each from Walid El Karti and Ayoub El Kaabi, who finished the tournament as the top scorer with nine goals, to give the hosts an emphatic win over the Super Eagles.

Moses Eneji made his first appearance of the tournament, but it is one to forget for the young winger who got sent off after the half-time to put Nigeria at a numerical disadvantage.

Salisu Yusuf’s boys created little chances at best, though Gabriel Okechuwku almost fired past goalkeeper Anas Zniti in the 26th minute but for the timely clearance of Salaheddine Saidi.
