2019 CAF U-17 men's AFCON: Morocco win right to represent North Zone at Tanzania 2019

Tunis, Tunisia (PANA) - Morocco on Tuesday defeated hosts Tunisia 1-0 and grabbed the ticket to represent North Zone in the 2019 African Under-17 men's Championship which will take place in Tanzania next year.

Morocco snatched the ticket after winning the Zone's lone group of four teams.

The win gave Morocco the maximum 9 points from three matches, 5 points ahead of the second-placed Algeria.

While Morocco defeated Tunisia 1-0 in the final qualifier, Libya and Algeria drew 1-1 and that result became inconsequential moving forward.

Here is the lone group standing after the final qualifiers.
