• Transfers: Ahly sign Moroccan striker Azaro for four years

    (Ahram Online) Ahly have completed the signing of Moroccan international striker Walid Azaro for a four-year contract, the Cairo giants announced on Sunday on the club's official website.

    The Egyptian League Champions showed interest in the 22-year-old before finalising the deal, which will cost the Red Devils $1.4 million as a transfer fee.

    "I am delighted to sign with one of the biggest clubs on the continent," Azaro told a news conference in Morocco on Sunday.

    "My transfer to Ahly is an important step in my career."

    "I will do my best to prove my worth, and I promise Ahly fans to help the club win in all competitions."

    Azaro thanked Morocco's coach Herve Renard, adding that he owes a lot to the Frenchman, who gave to the Moroccan striker his confidence in the last period.

    Renard introduced the young striker by putting him in the front line of the Moroccan national team during the Atlas Lions' three previous games.

    The international striker is one of the hottest prospects in Moroccan football, scoring 12 goals with Difaa El-Jadida last season.

  • Press review: Morocco stutter in Yaounde

    Morocco lost their opening 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Group B qualifier 1-0 against Cameroon at Stade Omnisport in Yaoundé on Saturday.

    The defeat sees Herve Renard's troops sitting at the bottom of the group with no points from one match so far.

    On the other hand, Vincent Aboubacar's goal gave the Indomitable Lions their first full three points as they sit at the top of the group.

    Cameroon came into this encounter backed by their vocal supporters at home and were the favourites to claim the full three points.

    As soon as they made their way onto the pitch, Hugo Broos men showed hunger as they dominated the proceedings over their visitors.

    Although the first 20 minutes had no goals for either side, it was the African champions who wanted it more as the Atlas Lions were yet to threaten.

    However, as the tie approached the half-hour mark, Aboubacar received a wonderful pass from the midfield and he managed to beat two Moroccan defenders, before putting the ball past the on rushing goalkeeper Munir El Kajoui.

    It was 1-0 at half time.

    Upon their return from the tunnel, the hosts enjoyed the ball possession, yet failed to double their lead as the Moroccan defence stood firm.

    Although they will automatically qualify to reach the 2019 CAF AFCON tournament, the Indomitable Lions are now sitting at number one with three points.

    The hosts are joint leaders in the group with Malawi on three points and one goal after the Flames defeated Comoros on the same day.

    However, both Cameroon and Morocco will resume their qualifying campaign in March 2018 when the African champions visit the Islanders (Comoros) whilst Renard's men will host the Flames of Malawi.
