Morocco earned their place in the final by defeating traditional tournament powerhouse Nigeria in the last four, coming out on top in penalties after holding their nine-player rivals at bay.

So far, they have completed a clean sweep of games at WAFCON - and in fact, have not tasted defeat since a loss to Spain in October last year.

This is Morocco’s first WAFCON appearance since 2000 too. In their prior appearances, they have never got beyond the group stage, marking this out as something of a remarkable fairytale.

Predicted Morocco starting XI: Ait El Haj, Mrabet, El Chad, Redouani, Amani, Chebbak, Nakkach, Mssoudy, Ayane, Tagnaout; Er-Rmichi.

In the semi-finals, South Africa edged Zambia 1-0 to book their place, on the back of a group stage sweep to take them into the knockout rounds.

Now, the country sits on the cusp of success, far beyond their past WAFCON form. They have never won the tournament before, and have suffered five losses in the final itself.

In their sixth appearance in the showpiece game, can they finally break through and win the whole thing?

Predicted South Africa starting XI: Dhlamini, Matlou, Mbane, Gamede, Smidt, Motlhalo, Jane, Cesane, Seoposenwe, Kgadiete; Dlamini.
