Egypt has put an end to the Moroccan curse, defeating Morocco for the first time in 31 years at the 2017 African Cup of Nations.
The Pharaohs managed to end the curse after Mahmoud ‘Kahraba’ Abdel-Moneim scored in the 88th minute of the match. The Zamalek player managed to find the goal after a corner kick by Egypt in the final minutes of the game.
The last time Egypt defeated Morocco was in 1986 when they won 1-0. Since then, Egypt lost four matches and drew a further eight.
Egypt, who are now progressing to the semifinals of the African Cup of Nations, will face Burkina Faso next. Burkina Faso managed to beat Tunisia 2-0 in what has been described as an upset.
