Afcon 2017: Sofiane Boufal to Miss Morocco's Next Match

Southampton midfielder Sofiane Boufal has withdrawn from Morocco's Africa Cup of Nations squad with a knee injury.

 

The 23-year-old was sent home on Sunday from a training camp, with a replacement yet to be named. Southampton spent a club record £16m to sign Sofiane Boufal in the summer. "Boufal has left after examination of his injury showed he would not be capable of playing," the national team said in a statement.

 

Morocco have already lost midfielders Younes Belhanda, Oussame Tannane and Watford's Nordin Amrabat to injuries. They play Finland in a friendly on Tuesday before heading to the tournament in Gabon, where their first match is against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Oyem on 16 January.
