DIRECT. Zambia - Morocco: the Atlas Lions qualify Ivory Coast, match summary

From 25 meters in the axis, Emmanuel Banda unleashed a heavy strike from outside the left. A missile which saw Bounou relax and slam the ball just above his crossbar. This was the only fear for the Moroccans in an evening where they will have been able to impose their technical ease and above all their collective influence on an opponent who is too limited; in his expression and who will have missed of character to force destiny. Much more would have been needed à Zambia that this distant and late attempt to hope to achieve a first victory in the African Cup of Nations since 2012 but could it really do so against Zambia? an opponent so sure of his football and his value.

The Atlas Lions only needed the first act to make the difference in the wake of the very restless Boufal. Not necessarily expected before the start of the competition, the former Angevin proved his strength. &agrav; his coach that he did well to take him to Ivory Coast. Untenable à left, he brought a complicated evening to life for everyone. Mwape and à the Zambian defense through its dribbles, its feints, its orientations and its movements. Also, it was very logical that he found himself at the same place. the origin of the only goal of the meeting. With a reversal of play, he destabilized the entire Zambian block to serve Hakimi. At the end of the run and volley, the PSG full-back straightened the ball in the center and found El Kaabi. The attacker came up against Mulenga but in the process, Ziyech took advantage of the confusion to finish with his left foot. A goal full of opportunism but which rewarded Moroccan domination.

A lesser evil since Zambia against Avram Grant did not show any resistance. the character that had been invoked by the former Chelsea technician.

A lack of personality fatal for the Chipolopolos, éeliminatedé while a draw would have been enough for them to continue the adventure and invent themselves as potential successors to the 2012 champions. By falling against Morocco, they gave up on their victory. their ticket for the rest of the competition Côte d'Ivoire, a safe host country waters by the grace of the football gods but sent for his wanderings in the mouth of Senegal, title holder.
