  • Press review: Cavani scores as Uruguay beats Morocco 1-0 in friendly

    AGADIR, Morocco (AP) — Edinson Cavani scored from the penalty spot as Uruguay managed a scrappy 1-0 win over Morocco in a friendly on Saturday.

    The hosts had the better chances but their profligacy was punished when Cavani sent Morocco goalkeeper Munir Mohand Mohamedi the wrong way after Diego Rolan was fouled in the area by Nabil Dirar in the 51st minute.

    Uruguay played without Luis Suarez, who is set to feature in a charity football match at his former Liverpool club on Sunday. Suarez will also be unavailable for the Copa America in June because of his suspension from competitive international games for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

    It was Uruguay's final game before coach Oscar Tabarez announces his squad for the Copa.

    Morocco should have taken the lead just before halftime when Abderrazak Hamdallah hit the post from close range before Cavani broke the deadlock against the run of the play.

    Uruguay 'keeper Fernando Muslera was then decisive to parry away Omar El Kaddouri's effort with a diving save, and denied Mehdi Benatia's attempt from the rebound.

    Cavani had a chance to double his tally 15 minutes from time but he could not connect with a fine cross from substitute Girogian De Arrascaeta, who fired over moments later.

  • Press review: Cavani penalty hands Uruguay friendly victory in Morocco

    (Reuters) - Edinson Cavani converted a second-half penalty to give Uruguay a 1-0 win over Morocco in a friendly on Saturday.

    The spot-kick was awarded after Diego Rolan was brought down by home goalkeeper Munir Mohand.

    It proved a successful outing for new-look Uruguay who are preparing for the Copa America in Chile in June.

    Morocco were playing their first international of the year after having been stripped of the right to host the African Nations Cup at the start of 2015.

  • NT: CAF Sanctions: CAS to Deliver its Verdict on April 30

    (Morocco World News) Rabat – The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the sport’s highest court, will decide on April 30th whether Morocco should or should not be suspended from participating in the 2017 and 2019 African Cup of Nations, Telquel reported.

    The Confederation of African Football (CAF)’s Executive Committee decided to ban Morocco from the next two African Nations Cup tournaments after asking to postpone the 2015 Afcon due to fears of the Ebola virus.

    Morocco was fined to pay a $1 million and was also ordered to pay 8 million euros in damages to CAF and its partners.

    The Moroccan Royal Football Federation (FRMF) decided to appeal the decision to the Swiss-based court, requesting the annulment of CAF’s decisions.

  • International Friendly Preview: Morocco - Uruguay

    (Goal.com) Oscar Tabarez has one last chance to assess his options ahead of naming his Copa America squad as Uruguay take on Morocco.

    Uruguay visit Morocco on Saturday in the final friendly before Oscar Tabarez selects his squad for this year's Copa America.

    Tabarez's men will head to Chile in June aiming to retain the title they won for the 15th time with victory over Paraguay in the final four years ago in Argentina.

    The absence of Luis Suarez - banned for the entire tournament after biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during last year's World Cup - is a blow to Uruguay's hopes of success.

    And the Barcelona forward is unavailable for the clash with Morocco in Agadir - which serves as Uruguay's final game before a pre-Copa America friendly with Guatemala, which comes after the deadline for naming squads.

    Suarez is instead playing in a charity game to mark former team-mate Steven Gerrard's final season with Liverpool.

    Also missing for the visitors is Hull City's Gaston Ramirez, the winger sidelined by a hamstring injury, while experienced duo Walter Gargano and Cristian Rodriguez have been overlooked.

    Rodriguez has been left out because of a thigh problem but the decision to omit Napoli midfielder Gargano is surprising given his status as a regular with the Serie A side.

    Gargano has not played for Uruguay since their 3-1 defeat to Costa Rica in the first game of the World Cup.

    For Morocco, the game represents their biggest test since a 2-0 defeat to Russia last June. However, despite the quality of their opposition, two of the North Africans' more talented players have not been included in the squad.

    Dynamo Kiev's Younes Belhanda and QPR's Adel Taraabt both miss out, with coach Badou Zaki handing call-ups to five uncapped players.

    Goalkeepers Munir Mohand Mohamedi and Abdelali Mhamdi have both been picked for the first time, along with 19-year-old defender Ahmed El Messaoudi.

    Further forward midfielder Sofyan Amrabat is another teenager to earn a call-up, the 18-year-old selected in spite of only making three appearances for Eredivisie side Utrecht.

    Nantes attacker Yacine Bammou could win his first cap, but Verona midfielder Mounir Obbadi will not feature because of a hamstring issue.

    For all the young talent potentially on show for Morocco, the focus is sure to be on Uruguay as they look to produce a strong performance in what serves as the last chance to impress Tabarez ahead of another tilt at the Copa America title.
