Cape Verde/Morocco: Man of the Match of Cape Verde V Morocco

A few minutes later Cape Verde almost regained the lead, but the Moroccan keeper had other ideas, and Heldon's effort was palmed away from the target. Three minutes before full time Kamel Chafni unleashed a left-footed strike from outside the area, but his effort sailed just over the bar.

In the 68th minute the Moroccans sent in a dangerous cross, but the Cape Verde keeper was not to be fooled, and his timing secured a comfortable catch. The North Africans continued to push forward and pressure the opposition, but Cape Verde's defence held strong.

After five minutes of extra time, the match ended 1-1, with both teams claiming a point from the entertaining match. Cape Verde and Morocco find themselves on two points in Group A, while South Africa top the standings with four and Angola have only a single point.

J Vozinha became man of the match. He encourages his team on the field.
