Benin Republic beat Morocco on penalties to reach AFCON 2019 quarter-finals


Benin Republic defeated highly rated Morocco in the first knockout match of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The West African team beat the North African team on penalties to reach the quarter-finals for the first time after a 1-1 draw in Cairo on Friday.

Moise Adilehou put Benin ahead early in the second half before Youssef En-Nesyri equalised, but Hakim Ziyech blew the chance to seal victory for Morocco by striking the post with a 96th-minute penalty.

Sofiane Boufal and En-Nesyri both missed in the shootout as Benin, who reached the last 16 on the back of three draws, triumphed 4-1 on spot-kicks.
