Morocco start World Cup campaign with a win

Morocco began their World Cup Qualifying campaign with a resounding 2-0 victory against Sudan at the Prince Moulay Abdellah stadium on Thursday evening.

Two goals in each half gave the Atlas Lions the much needed three points on the night.

Vahid Halilhodzic men started the game on a high note, and took the lead after 10 minutes through Naif Aguerd. The Rennes center-back took advantage of the Sudanese defense’s hesitation to send a sharp shot in the net.

The Atlas Lions dominated the game, but failed to add more goals before the break.

Eight minutes into the second half, Abuaagla Abdalla deflected the ball with a header into his own net to double Morocco’s lead.

Morocco topped Group I on three points, and will face Guinea who earlier had a 1-1 draw with Guinea-Bissau on September 6.
