The goals may have come from Mbark Boussoufa and Youssef El Arabi but Abdelaziz Barrada was the true star in Marrakech on Wednesday

A goal on either side of halftime from Mbark Boussoufa and Youssef El Arabi were enough for Morocco to overcome Burkina Faso at Marrakech Stadium on Wednesday and ease some of the pressure off Eric Gerets.

The match began with the venue the emptiest it has ever been for a national team game since it’s inauguration last year, as many Moroccan fans were seemingly boycotting the match in protest over the Atlas Lions’ poor showing during the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon). Those present subjected coach Gerets to a torrent of abuse before the start of the proceedings.
