Onigbinde backs Eagles for CHAN title

Onigbinde backs Eagles for CHAN title

Hosts Morocco are set to face Nigeria in the finals of the CHAN tournament set for February 4.

"The team have done well to qualify for the final of the competition and they can prove their mettle against the hosts in the final and win the competition", he said.

In the second half, Morocco's first CHAN title edged even closer after Nigeria's Eneji Moses left the pitch after a second yellow card at the 47th minute.

Goals from Walid El Karti, Ayoub El Kaabi and a Zakaria Hadraf brace saw the Atlas Lions coast to victory over the Super Eagles, who had Otekpa Eneji sent off early in the second half.

He followed up with a hat-trick - only the third in the history of the tournament - against Guinea, put one past Namibia and scored twice in the semi-final victory over Libya.

Morocco pocketed $1.25 million after the record winning margin, joining the honors board of DR Congo (champions in 2009 and 2016), Tunisia (2014) and Libya (2014).

When is Morocco vs Nigeria?

Three un-replied goals were later scored at the scored half and at final whistle the Moroccon celebrated their first ever CHAN championship by defeating the Nigeria by 4-0. "The final of the African Nations Championship beckons and we will go out there with all that we have got".

El Karti headed home the second in the 61st minute after Ajiboye had parried Ismael Haddad strike to his direction after El Kaabi's bicycle cycle was denied by the woodwork again.

Eight-goal El Kaabi is the runaway leading scorer in the tournament restricted to footballers playing in their country of birth, with his nearest rivals five behind.

The World Cup has only been hosted once in Africa - in South Africa in 2010 - and this will be Morocco's fifth bid.
