Playing at a packed Complexe Mohammed V in Casablanca, Morocco needed extra time to beat fellow north Africans Libya on Wednesday evening. The first-half ended goalless but on the 73rd minutes mark CHAN record top scorer Ayoub El Kaabi scored.

The lead was cancelled thirteen minutes later as Libya’s Abdulrahm Khalleefah hit an equalizer sending the game into extra time.

El Kaabi extended his scoring record with a goal in the first part of the extra time. Morocco sealed a dominant performance when Walid El Karti scored a penalty to put the result beyond Libya.

In the other fixture between Nigeria and Sudan at the Grande Stade Marrakech, it was the west Africans who took a first-half lead through Gabriel Okechukwu’s 16th minute goal.

The dynamics of the game changed in the second-half as Nigeria’s Ifeanyi Ifeanyi was sent off. Both managers quickly tinkered with their squads with a number of quick substitutions. But Nigeria held on to set up a final with the hosts.
