Morocco continues its strong winning streak and manages to win against Guinea 4 goals to 1, in a tough match, thus validating its ticket for the final phase of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
The national team began their meeting with growing confidence after a double victory against Guinea Bissau (5-0, 3-0).
Halilhodzic’s men struggled to materialize in the first few minutes, especially Imran Louza who scored a first opportunity after a very good job from Ryan Mmae.
Despite the danger caused by the Atlas Lions, the Guineans regain the advantage and create the danger approaching the nets of Yassine Bounou, before being stopped by Soufiane Chakla, author of great performances throughout the match.
The first goal of the meeting is signed Ayoub El Kaabi (21 ′) after a mad race from Achraf Hakimi and a recovery from Ryan Mmae. The Hatayspor player shows once again that he can be essential for the team, author of 4 goals in 3 games during his qualifiers.
The response of the Guinean selection will not be long in coming since Mamadou Kane will offer the equalizer in the 31st minute, thus ending a series of matches without conceding a single goal.
An achievement that will not scare the Moroccans who will continue to press, before Selim Amallah (42 ′) doubles the stake before the end of the second period. The Standard de Liège player, author of a big mistake during the equalizer, seems to have recovered.
After a difficult first period, the Mountakhab players did not give up, starting with an attempt by Imran Louza and the new nugget of the den, Ryan Mmae, very present on the field with an offensive work that allows to clear the way to his teammates, before an incredible attempt by Achraf Hakimi who will pass near the net of the Guinean goalkeeper.
For several minutes, possession of the ball will be in favor of the opposing team which will almost shake the nets of Yassine Bounou. This is without counting on the captain and boss of the defense Ghanem Saiss who will counter this shot.
Greedy after his first goal, Selim Amallah will allow Morocco to regain the advantage (65 ′) and at the same time offer himself his first double with the selection.
What strike from Amallah 🥵☄️🇲🇦

The entry into play of Sofiane Boufal will do a lot of good for the workforce and very bad for the Guinean defense who came close to a goal from Ryan Mmae.
Always with the insolence that we know him, Boufal regales and concretizes on a center of Fajr, to score his first goal (89 ′) in selection in the best way, in scissors like Ayoub El Kaabi to close this meeting in style.

On a cross from Fajr, Boufal scored his first goal in the selection in the best possible way.
