Flag of MoroccoWe will be paying particular attention to Morocco‘s progress in the African Cup of Nations Cup, which takes place in South Africa from January 19th 2013. Aswell as becoming the pride of the continent, the competition winners will also automatically qualify for 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Morocco have been grouped alongside one of the favourites, South Africa as well as outsiders Angola & Cape Verde. Morocco should qualify from Group A, however the ‘Lions of the Atlas’ are not expected to progress too far in a competition they last won in 1976. Back then, they drew 1-1 against Guinea in Ethiopia, with a late goal from Ahmed Baba Megrouh to win the title. Could it be Morocco’s time again?
