Before kick-off, both coaches picked the game as perhaps the clash of the tournament, but after the opening 45-minutes, things weren’t going according to that plan for the Super Eagles.

The Atlas Lions, through goals from Mohsine Moutouali, who scored twice and Mouhssine Iajour, raced off to a 3-0 lead after 41 minutes and headed into the half-time break comfortably ahead.

However, Nigeria rallied to complete one of the most stunning comebacks, as Ugonna Uzochukwu, Rabiu Ali and a 90th minute goal from Christantus Ejike Uzoenyi, forced the game into extra-time.

After they were made to work for their three goals in regular time, Nigeria got a gift in extra-time after Morocco goalkeeper Nadir Lamyaghri failed to collect a ball cleanly and Abubakar Ibrahim reacted first to slot home the spill and send the Eagles into the semi-finals.
