Morocco blast six past hapless Gabon in friendly

RABAT, Nov 16 (Reuters) - Morocco recorded their biggest win in more than a decade with a 6-0 thumping of Gabon in a friendly international on Wednesday.

The home side went on a scoring spree in the second half after Bouchaib El Moubarki had given them a one goal lead at the interval in Rabat.

The remaining five goals came in the last 25 minutes against a Gabon side devoid of most of their Europe-based professionals.

Substitute Jawad Ouaddouch scored a debut goal in the 65th minute, followed three minutes later by Nourdine Boukhari's effort.

El Moubarki added the fourth in the 71st minute, defender Hicham Mahdoufi out-sprinted the visiting defence for the fifth two minutes later and Hassan Souari completed the rout with a goal in stoppage time.

Morocco scored seven goals without reply in beating Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo, in a friendly in Settat in August, 1996.

It was the second successive heavy defeat for Gabon's new coach Alain Giresse, who saw his side beaten 5-0 by the Ivory Coast in an African Nations Cup qualifier in Abidjan last month.
