Morocco in action against Cape Verde at the Nations Cup
Aachid Taoussi has blamed personal error and poor substitutions as the reason for Morocco’s latest set-back against Cape Verde.
The Atlas Lions were left frustrated once again when they found themselves trailing a goal down to the Blue Sharks at half time, leaving it for Youssef El Arabi to cancel out Platini’s strike.
It was the second straight draw for the Moroccans, who now find their hopes of qualifying in jeopardy, and Taoussi admits it was a result of negligence from his players.
“There were a lot of personal mistakes between players. It also took a bit of time for our players to find familiarity with each other, especially in the first few minutes,” Taoussi said after the game.
“And then also the substitutions made things difficult, but in the first half we also tried hard, but unfortunately it didn’t work. We’ll try to do better next time.”
Morocco now sit equal on points with Cape Verde, while South Africa top Group A with four points.
