Morocco qualify for the Round of 16 as Group D winners while Ivory Coast are runners-up. South Africa end third with slim hopes of having a chance at making the cut for the next round. Namibia are out. 

01 Jul 2019

FULL-TIME: Bafana Bafana 0-1 Morocco

01 Jul 2019

90' Three minutes of additional time added on ...

01 Jul 2019

Again Morocco steals it at the death with a goal from Boussoufa.

01 Jul 2019

89' GOAL! GOAL! GOAL! 

01 Jul 2019

83' End to end stuff but nothing threatening the goal.

01 Jul 2019

80' Kekana comes on for Zungu

01 Jul 2019

76' Second substitution for Morocco. Dirar is on for Mazraoui

01 Jul 2019

74' Great defending from Mkhize as he reads the run of En-Nesyri perfectly to get in front of the striker and allow Williams the chance to come out and collect.

01 Jul 2019

73' Substitute: Veldwijk comes in in place of Mothiba. 

01 Jul 2019

71' South Africa are trying to respond as they get lots of players forward and Morocco has to be at their best to keep Tau at bay who found himself within the box with the ball at his feet.

01 Jul 2019

68' CHANCE! Youssef En-Nesyri receives a deep lying through ball from midfield and makes his way into the penalty area. He touches it past Williams but his effort to strike the ball on target goes wide. 

01 Jul 2019

65' Despite South Africa's lack of attacking prowess, Morocco has been fantastic at holding on to the ball in dangerous areas and getting it rolling. 

01 Jul 2019

63' CHANCE! Morocco hit the upright through a deft Hakimi strike. That came out of nowhere! Williams clearly beaten.

01 Jul 2019

57' Meanwhile in the other Group D match Ivory Coast has just made it 2-0 courtesy of Serey. 

01 Jul 2019

51' Much more wide being provided now by Hlanti and Mkhize as the hope the space in the middle of the park would widen.

01 Jul 2019

48' Mkhize finds himself open on the right flank just on the edge of the penalty area as he is played the ball after Serero is crowded out. The right backs hits the ball narrowly wide of the target. 

01 Jul 2019

45' Second-half underway ...

01 Jul 2019

Meanwhile, Ivory Coast are 1-0 against Namibia ...

As it stands, South Africa will finish third behind Ivory Coast (2nd) and Morocco (1st) ...

01 Jul 2019

A lack of tempo from either sides has seen the first 45 minutes without any goals. Mood should change for the second stanza. Lets hope at least.

01 Jul 2019

45' Referee brings the first-half to an end ... 

01 Jul 2019

42' Morocco try to hit Bafana on the counter-attack after the South Africans committed a few players forward but Baxter's men do well to get numbers back behind the ball and deal with the threat.

01 Jul 2019

40' Baxter quite animated throughout the game. Wants the result to go his way badly ...

01 Jul 2019

37' Still goalless at the Al Salam stadium ...

01 Jul 2019

34' MOROCCO! On the other end now Belhanda sees a deflected clearance from Tyson flights in front of him and releases a deft shot straight into the palms of Williams.

01 Jul 2019

33' CHANCE! Percy Tau inches wide of the target as he finds room outside the penalty area and weaves his way through three white shirts before pulling the trigger. Exciting play!

01 Jul 2019

28' Serero knocked down easily as the South Africans scream for a card. Morocco making sure that the likes of Serero and Tau don't get too much room to create something special.

01 Jul 2019

26' Morocco pretty poor in the final third of the pitch as they fail to produce the goods on creating opportunities too create or score a goal. 

01 Jul 2019

22' Morocco the more dominant in possession at the moment while Bafana Bafana continue to chase the ball.

01 Jul 2019

20' Pretty even across the field as both Morocco and Bafana look ease their way going forward. 

01 Jul 2019

18' Yellow! Zwane booked for a poor foul on Boussoufa.

01 Jul 2019

16' CHANCE! A teasing cross into South Africa's penalty area sees Williams charge out to glove it out the danger area. 

01 Jul 2019

15' A corner allows Tau the chance to deliver a ball into the box but Mazraoui is alive to threat as heads away.

01 Jul 2019

13' A wayward pass that was meant for Mothiba goes astray as Bafana gifts possession back to Morocco. Amrabat looks to make a ball over the top count but he cannot control it as it goes out for a throw-in.

01 Jul 2019

10' Ten minutes gone and the Moroccans starting to see more of the ball but Bafana Bafana are looking much more assertive and organised. 

01 Jul 2019

6' Surprising enough, South Africa are committing quite a few players forward in attack!

01 Jul 2019

4' - An attack down the left from Morocco sees Amrabat fire in a low cross but its to close to Williams who collects easily. 

01 Jul 2019

3' - Early corner for Bafana sees an intricate short corner eventually lifted towards the back post, but Bafana blown up for offsides. 

01 Jul 2019

Interestingly, South Africa have never lost to Morocco at AFCON.

In four games, they have two wins and two draws over the years. 

01 Jul 2019

1' - Early possession for Morocco eventually sees a long ball thumped up field. Easily dealt with by the South African defence. 

01 Jul 2019

1' - Morocco get us underway in this crucial Group D AFCON 2019 encounter...

01 Jul 2019

Almost time for kick-off in Egypt!
