Tournament Of Shocks, Africa Number 1, Morocco Ousted By South Africa!

And the shocks continues! It has been one of the most shock-laden Africa Cup of Nations as South Africa have upset the tournament’s favourites, Morocco to reach the quarter finals.

The Bafana Bafana coach, Hugo Broos has lived up to his pre-match statements that his team was going to upset Morocco which he considered the biggest obstacle to the final match.

After a barren first half, Evidence Makgopa  set the stadium agog in the 57th minute when he put South Africa ahead.

Achraf Hakimi missed a late chance to equalise from the penalty spot. He was afforded a golden opportunity to level when Mothobi Mvala  handled Ayoub El Kaabi’s shot, only to fire his 85th minute spot-kick against the crossbar.

Manchester United midfielder Sofyan Amrabat was dismissed in stoppage time before Teboho Mokoena curled a classy free-kick past Bono to confirm the upset in style.
