Sousse (Tunisia): Tunisia seriously compromised their chances of qualifying for the next African Cup of Nations after losing 0-1 to Morocco here.

Despite the expulsion of two Moroccan players, the Tunisians did not manage to create any serious goal opportunities Saturday evening. However, Morocco`s Abdessamad Mbarki stunned the Tunisian side in the last minute to score the only goal of the game, further complicating Tunisia`s task during the return match in Morocco next week, reports Xinhua.

Tunisia now has to win the return match against Morocco to hope to qualify for the next round of the continental event.
