  • Morocco Outclass CIV To Seal World Cup Spot Tunisia Through

Morocco became the next African nation to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after they defeated Ivory Coast 2-0 in their final Group C clash.

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.

He was partially at fault again shortly after, failing to come and collect a corner delivery which was ultimately directed into the net by Morocco captain Medhi Benatia, who made the most of slack marking.

They topped the group on 12 points, four above the Ivorians.

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

A goalless stalemate at home to Libya was enough for the Eagles of Carthage to pip Congo DR to top spot in Group A, while Morocco recorded an impressive 2-0 victory away to Côte d'Ivoire.

The appearance in Russian Federation will be their fifth.

That result eliminated the Ivorians from the tournament in Russian Federation in 2018, while Tunisia also qualified at the expense of DR Congo. Before today's matches, Tunisia had 13 points while DR Congo had 10 points.

Guinea levelled the contest in the 71st minute through Karamokoba Keita, but two goals in stoppage time - Neeskens Kebano's strike and a Jonathan Bolingi penalty - secured a 3-1 victory for the hosts.

Tunisia finished a point clear of DR Congo, who were seeking a first trip to the finals since 1974 when they played as Zaire, to achieve their own fifth World Cup qualification.

Group E finishes on Sunday with Egypt travelling to Ghana while Group D winners Senegal can celebrate with a dead rubber against South Africa on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT).
