Morocco_Bafana REUTERS Morocco's Issam El Adoua (right) celebrates his goal against South Africa with his teammates.

At halftime, Morocco were leading South Africa 1-0 with the goal coming from Issam El Adoua inside 10 minutes.

In the other group A game, Angola were leading Cape Verde 1-0.

South Africa can qualify for the quarter-finals with all three results – a win, draw and even a loss – although they will also need the Angolans to either beat or share the spoils with Cape Verde Islands.


South Africa: Itumeleng Khune, Anele Ngcongca, Bongani Khumalo (captain), Siyabonga Sangweni, Tsepo Masilela, Dean Furman, May Mahlangu, Thuso Phala, Bernard Parker, Tokelo Rantie, Katlego Mphela.
