Anderlecht striker Mbarak Boussoufa scored two goals as Morocco beat Niger 3-0 in a friendly match on Wednesday.

Boussoufa set his side on its way with the opening goal after 16 minutes, converting Arsenal forward Marouane Chamakh's cross.

Chamakh went close with a header and Youssef Hadji hit the post as Morocco continued to dominate against a limited Niger side.

Boussoufa finally added the second goal eight minutes from time with a penalty before Amine Bakkali wrapped up the scoring in injury time with a long-range free kick.
