Atlas Lions send title holder Ivory Coast home, quarter final reached (video)

We made it, after 13 years of back flow to the knockout-phase!

The Moroccan national football team has her own just rewards on all fronts, as sharp as that critics ahead of this tournament were, as hard bites the Lions of the Atlas. Morocco won tonight by a superb goal by Nimes striker Rachid Alioui, the attacker meant when he along with Youssef and-Nesyri for the goal stood and completed on phenomenal. Just before resting, the playmaker who still exchanged as a replacement was brought in for the injured Aziz Baldock.

About the whole match seen surpassed, however, knew the Côte d'Ivoire in ball possession, but difficult to create opportunities. In particular, the Moroccan defence were the Medhi Benatia and Hamza Mendyl that the Ivorian attackers van 't scoring kept. But the man who is supposed to get even more appreciation is goalkeeper Munir. Time and time again he held Morocco in the contest by being the last to be responsible for the cleaning of its purpose. The keeper of CD Numancia conceded only two goals in the group stage.

Morocco has grown in this group stage, especially after the zeperd in the opening goal with DR Congo there seems to be what to have changed with the team. We saw this back right away in the encounter with Togo. Pugnacity to see despite that Morocco was in attacking respect many eye catchers fog. Case is now to this line. After the age of 13 may the Lions of the Atlas is once again shown in the knockout stage of the tournament. The opponent in the quarterfinals will be Egypt or Ghana, depending on the State in that group is tomorrow.

The only thing the Moroccan supporter until then can do is enjoy, especially with these images. [video = youtube; k48kk-PdWgo] v = k48kk-PdWgo [/video]
