Hosts Morocco kicked off the CHAN 2018 tournament in a remarkable style drubbing Mauritania 4-0 in the opening match played at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca

Morocco looked favourites on paper and despite a goalless first half ,the hosts reigned supreme on the second half soaking four goals past a Mauritania side that was making their second appearance in the tournament

Ismail El Haddad enticing through ball found the foot of Ayoub El Kaabi who slotted it past Brahim Souleymane in Mauritania goal

El Haddad added the second six minutes later after Souleymane failed to keep his shot .El Kaabi got his second of the night with teammate Achraf Bencharki adding the fourth

Morocco tops the group with three points with the other group match between Guinea and Sudan set for today

Group B matches will also take place with Ivory Coast taking on Namibia and Zambia playing against Uganda
