• Press review: Morocco on beast mode as they defeat Slovakia 2-1

    An entertaining Morocco beats Slovakia 2-1 as Ayoub Kaabi and Younes Belhanda score the goals to give their nation this triumph.

    The Lions of the Atlas dominated the first half in every aspect, dazzling the audiences with displays of sheer beauty, yet left a lot of space in the back giving the Slovakian troops a chance to exploit their defense.

    Their two biggest chances came from long rang shots, the first was by Moubarak Boussoufa and was stopped by Michal Sulla and the other hit the bar by the team’s main man upfront, Hakim Ziyech.

    In the second half, FC Copenhagen’s Jan Gregus fired the first goal for Slovakia from outside the box and a few minutes later Ayoub Kaabi brought the game level, connecting his header with a corner cross.

    Amine Harit missed a clear-cut chance inside the box as his shot went very wide and his opportunity was followed by Manuel da Costa unleashing a screamer that was once again stopped by the shot stopper.

    Morocco continued to force their attack, until a deflected ball reached Younès Belhanda who received the ball on his chest and bagged a world class strike to give Morocco this victory.
