Morocco lead Nigeria by four goals

Former Super Eagles player, Mutiu Adepoju, has advised the CHAN Super Eagles to make good use of any chance that comes their way to score early goals in tomorrow's African Nation's Championship final against the Atlas Lions of Morocco.

There will be a new name on the African Nations Championship (CHAN) trophy on Sunday as hosts Morocco take on Nigeria, who could become the first west African team to claim the prize.

Both sides came through tough semifinals on Wednesday evening: Morocco needed extra time to overcome a resilient Libya 3-1 in their North African derby in Casablanca, while Nigeria edged Sudan 1-0 in a hard-fought clash in Marrakech.

Nigerian Gabriel, who scored the extra-time victor against Angola in the quarter-finals, finished a route-one move by darting through to fire a low shot past Sudan captain Akram Elhadi.

A Morocco win at this tournament wouldn't be complete without a strike from El Kaabi, and the forward duly notched his ninth of the 2018 CHAN when redirected a shot from Nahiri in the 73rd minute to complete the scoring.

A dominant start from Morocco to Sunday's final kept Nigeria pegged firmly back in their half and Salisu Yusuf's side looked to be facing a supremely tough task when El Kaabi fired in a bicycle kick that kissed the wood work. Morocco continued with their offensive play moving the ball at pace in Libya's final third.

The hosts are packed with pace and power and will be hoping to entertain their fans when they face the Super Eagles in the finals.

In other fixtures, Nigeria won 1-0 against Sudan through Gabriel Okechukwu's 16th minute goal.

Walid El Karti ensured the Nigerians had a mountain to climb with the second goal in the 61st minute.

Eneji was sent for an early shower two minutes into the second half following a foul on Hadraf to early a send booking.
