The Championship of African Nations -CHAN- winners will be crowned tonight when hosts Morocco take on Nigeria in the final.
Morocco go into this evening’s final as favorites having scored twelve goals and conceded two while Nigeria has scored Seven and allowed Two.
Nigeria edged Sudan one-nil in the semi-final as Morocco edged Libya 3-1 to set up an explosive final this evening.
Tonight’s final will produce a new winner as neither Morocco nor Nigeria has won the tournament meant for locally based players since its inception in 2009.
On Saturday night, Sudan won bronze when they beat 2014 champions Libya 4-2 on post-match penalties after a one-nil draw in regulation time in the Third-Place play-off.
Zambia, who were among favorites to win the tournament were ejected from the competition in the quarter-finals after losing one-nil to Sudan last Saturday.
