Halfway through the opening 45 minutes of the match, Yanis Begraoui finished off a great team goal to make it three for Morocco with 15 minutes to the end of the first 45 minutes of the match.
Just before the end of the opening 45 minutes full of fireworks, Salim Adams got one back for Ghana via deflection to make it 3-1 at half time.
Few minutes after the break, captain fantastic Abdessamad Ezzalzouli added the fourth for Morocco with his third goal of the tournament.
Begraoui got his brace moments later to make it 5-1 to the hosts nation who were at the point cruising to a comfortable win.
