An injury-time matchwinner has sunk Auckland City at football's Club World Cup in Morocco.

Hometown representatives Raja Casablanca won 2-1 with a 92nd minute matchwinner through winger Abdelilah Hafidi.

The home side struck first seven minutes before half-time with Auckland City's Fijian striker Roy Krishna tying things up in the 63rd minute after a defensive mix-up put him through 1-on-1 with the keeper.

It's the fifth time Auckland City has appeared at the Club World Cup tournament.

Casablanca will now face Monterrey of Mexico in the quarter finals.
