Nightmare In Rabat For Guinea-Bissau as Morocco Score Five
It was a nightmare to forget for Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday night after Morocco slammed five goals past the food-poisoning recovering Djurtus side to register a 5-0 victory in a 2022 World Cup, Group I qualifier match at the Stade Moulay Abdellah in Rabat.
The opening 30 minutes proved to be a dull affair, with the home side being restricted to long range efforts.
However, Guinea-Bissau’s resistance was broken in the 33rd minute, as Imran Louza slid a powerful tee up Achraf Hakimi, who fired home from close range.
Two minutes to half-time break, the Atlas Lions double was doubled, this time Louza getting on the score-sheet scored from the spot, after one of strikers was brought down in the area.
Guinea-Bissau did not offer much in attack and defended with all their might to go into the break only trailing by two goals.
On the 49th minute Ilyas Chaira put the result beyond doubt with his second goal of the night and his country’s third, 3-0.
The home side added a fourth in the 62nd minute courtesy of a clinical finish from striker, Ayoub El-Kaabi.
The icing on the cake for Morocco was their fifth goal, scored by Munir El Haddadi in the 82nd minute, 5-0.
The win takes Morocco to the top of Group I with six points from two games, two more than second placed Guinea and Guinea Bissau, while Sudan trails the group on one point.
