Finally Benin reach quarter finals of AFCON2019 without winning a single match

Posted by on July 6th, 2019

 

 

10-man Benin stunned Africa Cup of Nations title contenders
Morocco in a penalty shootout on Friday to reach the quarter-finals
after a 1-1 draw in Cairo.
Moise Adilehou forced home at a corner early in the second half to
put Benin on course for a shock win but Youssef En-Nesyri equalised
for Morocco before Ajax star Ziyech blew the chance to snatch
victory by striking the post from the spot in the 96th minute.
Benin were forced to play most of extra time a man down after
Khaled Adenon received a second yellow card for dissent, but they
prevailed 4-1 in the shootout following misses by Sofiane Boufal and
En-Nesyri to set up a clash with Senegal or Uganda on July 10 for a
spot in the semi-finals.
With this, Benin have now played a total of 13 games in the history
of the African Cup of Nations without winning a single game. This
year they only scraped through to the knockout rounds on the back
of three draws after holding both Ghana and reigning champions
Cameroon.
