Morocco’s U-20 team are in pole position to set up a potentially explosive tie against Ghana after thrashing Gambia 4-0 in the African Youth Championship qualifiers.
A double brace by Omar Ati Allah and Reda Ennoually ensured the Junior Atlas Lions made good use of their home advantage against the Scorpions.
The result last weekend in Casablanca now means, Gambia have to win by at least 5-0 in the return encounter in a fortnight in Banjul to progress to the ultimate round of qualifiers where either Ghana or Uganda awaits.
U-20 teams across the African continent are fighting to secure a spot in next year’s finals to be hosted in Algeria.
