The nine year old CHAN record held by ex-Zambia striker Given Singuluma has been broken.
Morocco striker Ayoud el Kaabi’s six goals, at the ongoing tournament his country is hosting, broke Singuluma’s all-time top scorer feat that has stood since 2009.
Singuluma scored five goals at the inaugural tournament held in Cote d’Ivoire where Zambia finished third.
El Kaabi, of Moroccan club RS Berkane, broke Singuluma’s record last Saturday in Morocco’s 2-0 win over Namibia.
Meanwhile, the 2018 CHAN semifinal line-ups are complete.
Nigeria will face Sudan while Morocco play 2014 CHAN champions Libya on January 31.
