Morocco players celebrate after beating Nigeria to win the 2018 CHAN on home soil (GetteyImages)
 
Morocco became the first host nation to claim the African Nations Championship (CHAN) title with a convincing 4-0 win over 10-man Nigeria in Sunday’s final.
 
Key moments either side of half-time turned the match in the hosts’ favour as Morocco’s Zakaria Hadraf scored just before the break with Nigeria’s Peter Eneji Moses sent-off for a second yellow card just after.
 
Walid El Karti and Hadraf – with his second – added to Morocco’s lead in quick succession on the hour mark.
 
The rout was completed by Ayoub El Kaabi, who had hit the woodwork twice, scoring his ninth goal of the tournament which is for home-based African players.
