• NT: Morocco win World Cup warm-ups

    (BBC Sport) Morocco won friendly on Tuesday as they continue their preparations for the 2018 World Cup in Russia in June.

    The Moroccans beat visiting Uzbekistan 2-0.

    Ayoub El Kaabi once again staked a claim for a place in Herve Renard's final Morocco squad for Russia with the opening goal against Uzbekistan after just four minutes.

    It was a first goal at in a full international for the 24-year-old El Kaabi, who impressed at the African Nations Championship as he helped the hosts win the tournament for home-based footballers with nine goals.

    France-born defender Manuel da Costa scored the second to seal the win, which follows the Atlas Lions' 2-1 victory over Serbia in Italy on Friday.
