Africa Cup of Nations: Tunisia beat neighbours Morocco

Tunisia capitalised on a wasteful Moroccan performance to beat their North African rivals 2-1 in Group C. Khaled Korbi opened the scoring for the Carthage Eagles, floating a free-kick straight into the Moroccan goal. Substitute Youssef Msakni doubled Tunisia's lead with a wonderful solo effort, before Moroccan skipper Houcine Kharjah pulled one back. Morocco squandered several chances to score but Tunisia deserved their opening win, after a gutsy performance.
