  2. 90

    Fourth official signals 3 minutes added time at the end of the game.

  3. 89

    Mateus jumps clear of Younes Belhanda and fires a rocket towards goal, but it's straight at the goalkeeper, who easily takes the ball in his grasp. Manucho tests the keeper again coming close with a diving header, but once again puts it just wide of the far post.

  4. 84

    Angola go close after shoddy defending from the Moroccans, but Manucho is unable to put his shot on target.

  7. 77

    Younes Belhanda receives a caution for pulling back Pirolito after losing the ball.

    Morocco have a staggering 22 fouls in the game, and Angola are only to happy to try and find Manucho with all the set-plays.

    Possession far more even now, but Morocco still edging it at 51% to Angola's 49%. The addition of Belhanda should add some attacking flair to the side.

  13. 63

    Abdelaziz Barrada comes off for Younes Belhanda

  14. 61

    End-to-end stuff, but Angola are definitely more of a threat at the moment. They've had quite a few free-kicks thus far, a worrying trend for the Moroccan defence.

    The referee blows the whistle for the end of the first half. We go into the break 0-0 after a timid start to the match. Morocco were the better side in the first period, but Angola are starting to grow into the match, setting the encounter up for a more exciting second half.
