The Atlas Lions garner a second success in two outings at the African Cup of Nations and will see the round of 16. They disposed of the modest selection of the Comoros (2-0) this Friday, in Yaoundé, for their second outing at the CAN and in group C, which they dominate with six points out of six possible. The qualification is acquired. It was Selim Amallah who made the difference in the 16th minute, before Zakaria Aboukhlal scored a break goal at the very end of the game. A precious success if not flamboyant for the men of Vahid Halilhodzic, who will face Gabon next Tuesday for their third match in this group C. Note that the Comoros can still dream of a place in 8th. It will be necessary for that to finish among the best third of this CAN.
At the same time, Malawi got rid of Zimbabwe (2-1) thanks to a brace from Gabadinho Mhango. A Group B match. Both teams were beaten in their first CAN outing.
