Morocco are set to face Nigeria, who beat Sudan 1-0 in the second semi-final, in Sunday's climax.

The Libyans continued their quest to score and the Moroccan keeper Anas Zniti made a good save at the feet of Moftah Taktak.

Morocco sealed a first final appearance in the five-edition tournament three minutes from time when fouled Walid el Karti converted the penalty.

Libya had the first chance of extra-time as Ahmed Eltrbi's header was scrambled away by a combination of Zniti and two other Moroccan players.

"We will be playing against a hard opponent but all my players are ready for the game because it is a special game for them".

"We were opposed to an organised selection that caused us a lot of problems".

Nigeria will now lock horns with Morocco in Sunday's final.
