Morocco drew 1-1 with DR Congo as action resumed in Group F in the AFCON taking place in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

The Morocco side was the favourite to win this match after they comfortably defeated Tanzania 3-0 in the first group game.

But DR Congo presented a stern challenge for the World Cup Semi-finalist Morocco. The Atlas Lions took the early lead when Achraf Hakimi scored in the 6th minute to gift the Morocco side a 1-0 lead.

Hakim Ziyech assisted the goal. Despite further chances for both sides to get a goal in the contest, it wasn't to be as a proof of how closely contested the game was.

But Cedric Bakambu missed a chance to level things up for his side as he missed from the Penalty spot.


After the restart, both sides continued to mount the pressure and in due time DR Congo got their equalizer.

This time they scored following a goal from Silas Katompa Mvumpa. He was assisted by Mechak Elia as it finished 1-1 between both sides Morocco and DR Congo.
