Benin have delivered one of the biggest upsets in Africa Cup of Nations history, eliminating much-fancied Morocco on penalties after Hakim Ziyech missed a late spot-kick in Cairo.

The Squirrels prevailed 4-1 on penalties after Sofiane Boufal sent his penalty over the bar, and Benin keeper Saturnin Allagbé tipped Youssef En-Nesyri’s effort onto the woodwork. Midfielder Mama Séïbou then stepped up to score the decisive spot-kick.

The west African side took the lead after 53 minutes through defender Moise Adilehou, but their hopes of a shock victory were dented when En-Nesyri levelled after 76 minutes. Mbark Boussoufa pounced on a defensive error and teed up the Leganés forward to slot home.

Morocco were then awarded a penalty in stoppage time after Stéphane Sessègnon had brought down Achraf Hakimi. Ajax’s Ziyech stepped up and sent Allagbé the wrong way – but his effort struck the post.

In extra time, Benin defender Khaled Adenon earned a second yellow card for dissent but the underdogs held on before prevailing on penalties to reach the quarter-finals for the first time, despite four successive draws in the competition.

They will face Senegal or Uganda in the quarter-finals, with those two teams metting in cairo later on Friday.
