The Atlas Lions were set to host their Liberian counterparts at Stade d'Agadir at 21:00 GMT+2 for the final round of the qualifiers. However, the Moroccan Football Federation officially requested the postponement from the African football governing body (CAF) earlier today.
"In light of the earthquake, Saturday's game between Morocco and Liberia has been postponed indefinitely, in coordination with CAF," the federation stated in a press release reported by Moroccan media on Saturday.
The powerful earthquake inflicted severe damage on multiple cities, resulting in numerous casualties and extensive structural damage.
Despite the postponement of Saturday's match, Morocco has already secured a berth in next year's African Cup, while Liberia has already seen their hopes of reaching the prestigious finals dashed.
