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.

chai! see life.

and some teams will win all in group stage and still fail to go beyond round 16. 9points in group stage is not the most important but how far you can go.

May the favor of God work in me always and make me go far in life. Amen

Poor record. 13 games with no single win.

There players yesterday did not conduct themselves, they were ready to fight everyone. The guy that got the red card was suspended by Caf abi Na Fifa for 1 year for something relating to that.

Anyways, Morocco excuses was their injured captain.. They didn't play up to expectations coupled with 94 mins penalty lose.

In their entire Afcon history, BENIN is yet to win a game in 90mins or even 120 mins of football.

They have played 13 Afcon games in their history.

Won None, Drawn 5 and lost 8 times.

Four of those five draws were at this ongoing Afcon and it has done enough to land them in the Quarter finals against all bloody odds.

Football does defy logic several times.
