Late Correa goal breaks the tedium in windswept Tangier

An 83rd minute strike from the Atletico Madrid player momentarily lifted the tedium in a friendly match that was conditioned by the high winds in the Moroccan city.

Morocco 0-1 Argentina: as it happened

Morocco - Argentina: preview

This is Lionel Scaloni's last test ahead of the 2019 Copa America which gets underway in Brazil mid June. As we saw from Friday's disappointing performance in Madrid where the "Albiceleste" had no answer to a majestic counter attacking display from Venezuela losing 3-1 on the night.

Tonight in Tangier there will be no Lionel Messi, an injury to his pubis area depriving the local fans of seeing one of the world's best at closer quarters and depriving the financial balance sheets of the AFA of a lucrative fee should the Rosario born striker had of played.

Morocco too are looking ahead to a Summer tournament after securing their place at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations which will now be staged in Egypt and coach Herve Renard will see his side among favourites with fans of the Atlas Lions hoping to add to their sole CAN win in 1976.
