Morocco: CHAN - We Can Beat Morocco, Eagles' Coach Dreams Big

Morocco coach Jamal Sellami is already looking ahead to Sunday's African Nations Championship final after seeing the back of Libya in the last four on Wednesday.

Walid El Karti and Hadraf - with his second - added to Morocco's lead in quick succession on the hour mark.

In this message, the Monarch said that he followed "with joy and pride the well-deserved achievement of the Moroccan selection of local players", who won the 5th edition of the CHAN, beating in the final Nigeria by 4 goals to 0.

"We're ready because it is going to be a big final for both sides and we're confident we can win the trophy".

"I congratulate my players, who made a great match despite the difficulties they faced", said Sellami after the clash with Libya.

In stoppage time of the first half Morocco broke the deadlock as Zakaria Hadraf tapped in a pinpoint cross, scoring the first his country to make it 1-0.

Publicist Jo Milloy later released a statement saying "the time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together".

"From the beginning of the tournament we selected players based on their physical conditions and the opponents".

Looking at the history books, Morocco and Nigeria have met in 12 official matches according to FIFA's database.

Bencharki, who has now signed for Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal, tried his luck with a direct free-kick from outside the area forcing Nashnoush to save well as the ball swerved.

This title is the first of its kind for the Atlas Lions at the African championship. Despite the Nigeria team being strong we have all that it takes to win and keep the throphy here. "If we do the right things, we will beat Morocco".

The Nigerians were reduced to 10 men when Ifeanyi Ifeanyi was sent off for a studs-up tackle and Sudanese Bakri Bachir got his marching orders for shirt pulling.

"I just want to encourage them to believe in themselves, just as we did in 2013".
