Moroccan Players Dance to Music Following their Victory over Ivory Coast

Moroccan Players Dance to Music Following their Victory over Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast forward Salomon Kalou announced his retirement from global football after the reigning champions were eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday.

Now coached by Renard's fellow Frenchman Michel Dussuyer, the Ivorians have so far drawn with both Togo and DR Congo but the noises coming out of their camp remain optimistic.

While unable to take part in the tournament due to injury, Yannick Bolasie was able to roar his Congolese countrymen on from his sofa at home.

"We beat a team from Ivory Coast on a bad field".

Chris covers the amusing side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.

Morocco await the winners of Group D, who will wrap up the group stage with their matches today.

French-born Alioui netted from 35 metres to take coach Herve Renard's side into the knockout stages and end the hopes of the country the latter led to the continental title two years ago in Equatorial Guinea.

"We are not favourites to win the tournament, there are better teams than us". This tournament began with the players on strike and refusing to train for two days because of a dispute over bonus payments.

Morocco went into the game knowing that a draw was very likely to be enough for them to qualify from Group C and their game plan from the start was to stay compact and hit on the counter-attack.

Togo, with only a long shot at qualifying for the quarters, pulled it back to 2-1 through Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba.

Morocco and Congo DR are waiting anxiously for tomorrow's games to either meet Ghana or Egypt in the quarter finals.
