Morocco cruises to semi-finals of African youth soccer championship
Morocco-Regional, Sports, 1/25/2005
Morocco are through to the semi finals of the African Youth Championship after defeating 1-0 on Sunday Angola at the Rene Pleven stadium in Benin's capital.
Meanwhile, Egypt edged out Lesotho 4-1 at the same city's Friendship Stadium.
Morocco secured their semi-final place with their narrow win over Angola as Mouhssine Iajour grabbed the only goal of the game in the 39th minute.
The results mean that Egypt win Group B thanks to a better goal difference over Morocco with both sides on seven points from their three matches.
Lesotho, who were playing in their first ever continental finals, finished third in the group with three points while the Angolans return home without securing a single point.
In Wednesday's semi-finals Egypt face Group A runners-up Benin while Morocco face Group A winners Nigeria, who have won all their matches in the tournament so far.
All four semi-finalists automatically qualify for Fifa's World Youth Championships in Holland in June.
