Published:

In a surprising turn of events, tournament favorites Morocco have been eliminated from the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations after a 2-0 defeat against South Africa on Tuesday evening.

South Africa, with this victory, is set to face Cape Verde in the quarter-finals on Saturday, February 3, at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium in Yamoussoukro.

The match saw both teams engaged in a closely contested battle for supremacy in the first half, resulting in a goalless draw.

However, South Africa took the lead in the 57th minute as striker Evidence Makgopa found the net with a well-placed shot inside the 18-yard box.

Despite intense pressure and a penalty opportunity for Morocco in the 83rd minute, when Teboho Mokoena handled the ball inside the South African box, Achraf Hakimi’s penalty hit the crossbar, denying Morocco the equalizer.
