A poor start by Bosnian Vahid Halilhodzic as coach of Morocco continued when lower ranked Mauritania forced a 0-0 draw in their first Group E match in 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying in Rabat.

Morocco are ranked 42nd in the world, 63 places above Mauritania, and the barren deadlock left Halilhodzic with only one win from five matches since succeeding Herve Renard three months ago.

Also on Friday, Tunisia thrashed Libya 4-1, Tanzania were late 2-1 winners over Equatorial Guinea and it was 0-0 between Zimbabwe and Botswana.
