Morocco mauls Mozambique


Badou Zaki's second spell in charge of Morocco started in fine fashion with a 4-0 triumph over Mozambique.

Zaki's first stint in charge of the national team came in a three-year spell between 2002 and 2005, in which he led the team to the final of the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations.

After failing to qualify for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Zaki resigned his post but he returned to the role to replace interim boss Hassan Benabicha earlier this month, and his second reign began well at the Estadio de Sao Luis in Faro.

Napoli midfielder Omar El Kaddouri, who spent last season on loan at Torino, opened the scoring before Youssef El Arabi doubled the advantage nine minutes before the break.

There was no respite after the restart, as goals from Aatif Chahechouhe and a second for El Arabi ensured Zaki enjoyed a happy return to the Morocco hot seat.
