Morocco scored early but was forced to split points with a gritty  Democratic Republic of Congo in their Africa Cup of Nations Group F clash on Sunday.

Star wing-back Achraf Hakimi scored in the sixth minute for Morocco, whose run to the semi-final of the World Cup in Qatar 14 months ago has made them the team to beat at the tournament in the Ivory Coast. But the Congolese wasted a first half penalty before substitute Silas Katompa swept home a deserved 76th minute equaliser at the Laurent Pokou Stadium. 

Tanzania and Zambia, the other two teams in Group F, will faceoff meeting later on Sunday at San Pedro.
