Chan 2021 Wrap: Uganda fail to break preliminary round jinx, Rwanda advance

The Cranes saw their ambition of earning a first-ever place in the quarter-finals ended by resilient Morocco
Uganda failed again to advance to the quarter-finals of the African Nations Championship after a 5-2 defeat to Morocco.

The Cranes needed a win against the reigning champions in order to book a place in the next phase after a 2-1 loss against Togo in the second group game complicated their chances of booking a maiden slot in the knockout phase.

A brace from Soufiane Rahimi, goals from Ayoub El Kaabi, Hamza El Moussaoui and an own goal by Charles Lukwago gave the North Africans the victory as they aim to retain the title.
