The Atlas Lions leave the adventure against the Pharaohs –

It was a difficult match for the Atlas Lions this Sunday at 4:00 p.m. in the quarter-finals of the CAN. Morocco had however opened the scoring in the 7th minute on a penalty by Soufiane Boufal after a foul on Achraf Hakimi. But Vahid Halilhozic’s proteges were quite passive and logically conceded a goal in the 53rd minute. Mohamed Salah, in surface fox, having recovered a ball released by Bounou after a reflex stop.

The Moroccans then found the crossbar, an action that injured the Egyptian goalkeeper. The latter finally went out in extra time and it was Egypt’s number 3 goalkeeper who replaced him in the game. The exit of Sofiane Boufal in the 66th minute, replaced by Soufiane Rahimi remains quite enigmatic. The coach will certainly be questioned on this tactical choice, while Boufal was not injured.

In the 100th minute, on a fine play led by Mohamed Salah, Trezeguet scored the second goal to lead 2-1. Too passive and not applied enough, the Atlas Lions were unable to equalize. A defeat with a bitter taste for Morocco, eliminated in the quarter-finals and which had shown an interesting face during this CAN.
