Morocco midfielder Mehdi Namli has been ruled out of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa after injuring his knee during a warm-up match here.
Officials said Namli would be replaced by Abdelilah Hafidi, who was dropped last week when the 24-man provisional squad had to be reduced by one player for the January 19-February 10 tournament.
The Atlas Lions face Angola at Soccer City stadium in Soweto Saturday in the second half of a Group A double-header, which kicks off with South Africa against debutants Cape Verde Islands.
