Marouane Chamakh is out of Morocco's African Cup of Nations clash against Mozambique on Sunday due to illness.

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has been ruled out of Morocco's African Cup of Nations clash against Mozambique due to illness.

The Moroccan football federation made the announcement on Wednesday but did not give details of the illness.

The African Cup of Nations final-round first-leg clash against Mozambique on Sunday would have been Chamakh's first appearance for his nation since the 28th edition of the competition in January.

Getafe midfielder Abdelaziz Barrada has replaced the 28-year-old in the Morocco squad.
