DR Congo 1-1 Morocco: Tarik Tissoudali’s Brilliant Goal Gives Morocco World Cup Advantage Over DR Congo

Morocco is closer to their sixth World Cup appearance with a 1-1 draw against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Kinshasa on Friday, as Tarik Tissoudali scored a magnificent equaliser. 

A move that began with a fantastic slide tackle by Moroccan defender Romain Saiss ended with Tissoudali firing the ball into the net on 76 minutes of the first leg of their play-off.

Yoane Wissa opened the scoring for DR Congo in the 12th minute, running down the flank, cutting inside, and firing a shot from just beyond the box that brushed past Saiss and beat goalkeeper Yassine Bounou.

With away goals counting twice if teams end level on aggregate, Morocco would qualify for the World Cup in Qatar with a 0-0 draw in Casablanca on Tuesday. 

On a dismal and windy evening, Morocco were uneasy by their defeat, and Cedric Bakambu and Dieumerci Mbokani squandered opportunities to extend the Congolese lead. 

The visitors blew a chance to equalize early in the second half when Ryan Mmaee blasted a penalty over the crossbar. 

With five minutes remaining, DR Congo were reduced to ten men as Ngonda Muzinga was sent off after receiving two yellow cards. He will be unable to compete in the rematch.
