Starting XI: Zim v Morocco

African Nations Championship

Teams: Morocco v Zimbabwe

Date: 12 January 2013

Venue: Athlone Stadium


Group B of the CAF African Championship will get underway on Sunday at Athlone Stadium as Morocco take on Zimbabwe in the opening game, kick-off at 17h00.

The other Group B match will take place a little later as Uganda take on Burkina Faso.

The Atlas Lions shocked the African footballing contingent when they dispatched defending Champions Tunisia to qualify for the final 16 of the CHAN tournament.

Abdesamad El Mobarky scored the only goal in the two-legged affair to ensure they would participate for their second successive tournament on South African soil, after having featured in the 2013 African Cup of Nations.

Zimbabwe have been hard at work in Cape Town over the last month under the guise of Ian Gorowa.

Gorowa’s side are considered one of the favourites of the tournament, but will face a tough task in Morocco.

Here is how they line-up.

Morocco: Nadir Lamyaghri, Zakaria El Hachimi, Abderrahim Achchakir, Mohamed Oulhaj, Mohamed Abarhoun, Issam Erraki, Anas Al Asbahi, Brahim El Bahri, Walid El Karti, Mohsine Moutaouali, Mouhssine Lajour                 

Zimbabwe: George Chigova, Hardlife Zvirekwi, Eric Chipeta, Partson Jaure, Milton Ncube, Donald Ngoma, Pascal Manhanga, Danny Phiri, Kuda Mahachi, Simbarashe Sithole, Ali Sadiki
