Morocco is qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation

For the record, the Atlas Lions team now managed by Hervé Renard, was qualified in the past to the World Cup in 1970, 1986, 1994, 1998.

Senegal qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 2002 on Friday after defeating South Africa 2-0.

Before Saturday, the trio of Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal had booked their tickets before the two North African countries also came on board to Russian Federation.

A mouth-watering clash lay in store in Abidjan, where Côte d'Ivoire hosted Morocco, with the victor booking a ticket to Russian Federation 2018.

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.

Tunisia secured the draw it needed, 0-0 at home against Libya, to qualify from Group A and edge out Congo.

Tunisia last played at the World Cup in 2006.

Morocco's win in Abidjan gave coach Herve Renard success over his former team and the country he led to the African Cup title in 2015.

Morocco completed the campaign without conceding a goal, finishing on 12 points, four ahead of the Ivorians.

Tunisia could not break down neighbours Libya in Rades on the outskirts of Tunis and had to settle for a 0-0 draw that was just enough to see them first over the finishing line.

Five minutes later, perhaps still shaken by his error for the first goal, he hesitated after deciding to come for a corner, and was left in no man's land when Benatia prodded home into the roof of the net.

Had Tunisia lost, they would have ceded top place to DR Congo, who finished strongly to overcome Guinea 3-1 at the Stade des Martyrs.
