Benin beat Morocco 4-1 on penalties, after the game was locked at 1-1 at the end of extra-time at Al-Salam Stadium in Cairo.
Youssef En-Nesyri had equalised late on for Morocco to cancel out Moise Adilehou's opener for Benin.
Ajax Amsterdam's Hakim Ziyech missing a penalty at the end of normal time gained a lot of attention on social media.
In our Twitter compilation, we also have a lovely video from television presenter Robert Marawa showing us the fan reaction from the stadium in Egypt. There's a fantastic video of Benin fans celebrating back home and much more.

The red card to Adenon is a joke, CAF is just useless. What kind of useless arrangee is this? They want Morocco to win at all cost. Shame on that useless referee and shame on CAF.— TracyChels (@ChelsTracy) July 5, 2019

The referee is the worst ever and shouldn't be allowed to officiate any match ever.
Disgusting attitude. #MARBEN
This referee has done his best to give Morocco an advantage. Lots of harsh decisions against Benin— KanteNation (@sethaadusei) July 5, 2019

Ziyech looked distraught and rightly so... he missed a penalty very late in injury time that could have won the game for Morocco, it went to extra time and Benin eventually won on penalties. mad 💀— isabella (@alissonramses_) July 5, 2019
Warned this would happen. Portugal won Euro 2016 only winning one game in 90min. Two AET wins. One penalty shootout. Failed to win a game in group stage. Now Benin KO 1 of Afcon's strongest teams, Morocco. These 3rd placed teams shouldn't progress. Makes the group stage a joke— Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) July 5, 2019
