Morocco needed a late Sofiane Boufal to overcome Ghana in Group C match of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium in Yaounde.
Boufal (Angers, France), benefited from a defensive mix up to bundle home and break Ghana hearts in the 83rd minute.
“We had a lot of chances to score the goal and we were happy in that shot. We knew that we would have a strong team forward and that we would not create facilities for us,” stated Boufal who was also named Man of the match, as quoted by CAF.
“The most important thing is that we have achieved our goal. This result motivates us and gives us confidence to face the next game. We will continue to work and stay focused on our objectives.”
