Africa cup of Nations, now known as WAFCON kicked off at the weekend with host Nation Morocco laboring to a 1-0 win over a very stubborn Burkina Faso team at the Prince Mauley Abdellah stadium in Rabat.

It was a difficult game for Morocco who were obviously the better team, but Burkina Faso were resolute in defending and it was only that 29th minute free-kick by the Moroccan captain Ghizlane Chebbak that separated both teams.
