South Africa: A 1-0 win over Namibia has the team feeling good, but players surely been working on their finishing. Seventeen shots, seven on goal, and just one goal scored isn’t good enough. To beat this Morocco team, they will have to be a bit more clinical against a formidable defense.
Morocco: Two straight shutouts has boosted this team’s confidence on defense after a couple of rough showings. Against a good Ivory Coast attack, Morocco allowed just three shots on goal for the entire game. The team is best when pushing the ball forward and applying pressure on defense.
