Ten-man Morocco held on for a 2-2 draw against Honduras on Thursday in the men's football Group D opener at the Olympics.
Morocco opened the scoring in the 39th minute with a superb volley from Abdelaziz Barrada. Honduras equalised in the 56th minute with a tap-in from Jerry Bengtson, who then converted a penalty nine minutes later to give the central American team a 2-1 lead.
But Honduras' advantage only lasted two minutes, with Morocco forward Zakaria Labyad chipping the goalkeeper from inside the area. Morocco left back Zakarya Bergdich was then shown a straight red card in the 71st for kicking Mario Martinez in the knee.
Honduras play Spain next, while Morocco take on Japan. Both matches are in Newcastle on Sunday.
