Morocco, which defeated Ghana 1-0 in the opening match, took the lead against the Comoros in the 16th minute of the match, when Amallah hit. Although he crossed his opponent’s favorite 19: 7, he did not manage to add a second goal for a long time. He failed seven minutes before the end of the penalty Nasírí, whose shot was neutralized by goalkeeper Ben Boina. Abúchlál got the insurance hit only at the end.
Ghana also scored a quick first goal against Gabon, which took the lead after 18 minutes of play thanks to a sharp shot by Andre Ayew. However, the charges of the Serbian coach Rajevac did not maintain a close lead. After the pass of the former Prague Sparta player Kanga, Allevinah equalized two minutes before the end. In the end, another former player of the Letna club Tetteh, who was only three minutes away, was eliminated in Ghana’s jersey.
Gabon had to do without the forward Aubameyang of Arsenal, who had a finding on his heart after the coronavirus, and the medical team decided not to take any chances with his start, according to the federation. Aubameyang’s compatriots Meyé and Lemina did not intervene in the match due to similar difficulties.
Senegal, which the bookmakers placed in the role of the biggest favorite for gold before the start of the tournament, was again limited in Group B by a number of absences due to the covid-19. The finalist of the last Nations Cup from 2019 initially defeated Zimbabwe 1-0 thanks to Maný’s converted penalty from the seventh minute of the setting, but this time he came out empty in Bafoussam.
Guilavogui had the biggest chance in the first half, which was caught by Dieng. His goalkeeper Keita neutralized Abdou Dialla after a change of sides, another Senegalese Bouna Sarr fired right next to him.
The first win of the tournament is celebrated by the Malawi footballers, who defeated Zimbabwe 2: 1 thanks to two goals of the striker Mhang and with three points they still live up the hope of advancement.
