RABAT, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- Morocco defeated Cameroon 2-0 in Casablanca on Friday night to edge closer to 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification.

After a balanced first half at Mohammed V Complex, the Moroccan team pressed more on the Cameroonians and succeeded to score two goals through Ajax Amsterdam's star Hakim Ziyach.

Ziyach converted a penalty kick in the 54th minute before adding his second goal through a shot from outside the box in the 65th.
