Benin Republic caused an upset in the ongoing Africa Cup of nations as the underdog defeated title contenders, Morocco in a penalty shoot-out on Friday to progress to the quarter-final.
The West Africans progress to the quarter-final is, however, significant because they have not recorded any victory in the tournament.
Benin qualified for the round of 16 on the back of 3 straight draws in the group stage holding continent big boys, Cameroon and Ghana.
Moise Adilehou forced home at a corner early in the second half to put Benin on course for a shock wi, but Youssef En-Nesyri equalised for Morocco before Ajax star Ziyech blew the chance to snatch victory by striking the post from the spot in the 96th minute.
Beninese forced to play most of extra time a man down after Khaled Adenon received a second yellow card for dissent, but they prevailed 4-1 in the shootout following misses by Sofiane Boufal and El-Nesyri to set up a clash with Senegal or Uganda on July 10 for a spot in the semi-finals.
With this, Benin has now played a total of 13 games in the history of the African Cup of Nations without winning a single game.
