Former Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech scored a crucial goal to ensure his Morocco side finished top of AFCON Group F which consisted of other sides like DR Congo, Tanzania and Zambia.

It was the goal Ziyech scored in the match that made the difference.

Having watched the likes of Roman Saiss and Youssef El-Nesyri scored in the 3-0 thumping of Tanzania in the opening game, Ziyech chose to find the back of the net when it mattered most against former African Champions Zambia.

Ahead of the Zambia versus Morocco showdown, the Atlas Lions were the favourites owing to the quality they've got in the team despite the presence of star striker Patson Daka for Zambia.

Morocco had more quality as they showed their class on the pitch with their mesmerizing movement on the ball.

The North Africans found the goal they desired following a brilliant finish from Morocco Skipper Hakim Ziyech to make it 0-1.

In the end, it proved to be the defining goal of the game as Morocco secured the maximum three points in the game.

It was a letdown for the Zambians who wanted to win the game to avoid a group stage exit as was the case for them after the final whistle.
