BREAKING Tunisia qualify for 2018 World Cup

Atlas Lions

Nigeria, Senegal and Egypt had previously sealed their spots in Russian Federation next year.

The Atlas Lions went into the match in Abidjan just needing a draw to consolidate their place as pacesetters in the final group match, but they went one better in what was an assured display.

Morocco secured their place at the 2018 World Cup with a 2-0 win away over the Ivory Coast, while Tunisia got the point they needed to book a trip to Russian Federation.

West Africa has dominated Africa's contingent at the World Cup in recent years but some of its big names missed out this time: Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Ghana, all African champions multiple times, won't be in Russian Federation.

Morocco have now qualified for their fifth World Cup (1970, 1986, 1994, 1998) and their first since France 1998.

Tunisia last played at the World Cup in 2006.

Morocco scored twice within five minutes through Nabil Dirar and Medhi Benatia during the opening half to triumph 2-0 in the Ivory Coast and win Group C.

It was to prove a costly miss for the home side, who had to win after beginning the match one point behind a Moroccan team coached by former Ivorian handler, Frenchman Herve Renard.

The North Africans finished top of the group on 12 points while Cote d'Ivoire occupied second position on eight.

Morocco needed only a draw from their final Group C game to finish top of the standings in the African preliminaries, ahead of the Ivorians, who had to win to clinch a fourth successive World Cup finals appearance.

Morocco and Tunisia have joined Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal to secure spots in the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, as the five nations will represent Africa in Russian Federation.
