He had, however, until this penalty totally missed, achieved without doubt his best performance in this CAN. But then, Ziyech had the ball of the qualifying at the end of the foot and failed (90 + 5e). As he failed miserably on his resumption of volley following a candy Boussoufa (117th). Of his penalty, the midfielder of Amsterdam will never really get over it. And for proof, after a solid performance, the talented Moroccan has completely extinguished over the extension.

It was Saint-Saturnin 8
If Benin has hung the first quarter-final of CAN in its history, Saturnin Allagbé is not for nothing. On the contrary. While happy to see Ziyech's penalty kick on his post at the very end of the match (90 + 5), the goalkeeper of the Squirrels turned into a real wall and never ceased disgusting the Atlas Lions . En-Nesryi (6th), Boussoufa (89th), but also the midfielder of Ajax (28th and 81st), still him, have broken their teeth on the last bastion of Benin. Showing strong dispositions, both on his line and in the air, Allagbé was the author of a partition XXL. And his incredible parade on En-Nesryi during this agonizing shootout will prove it. A national hero!
