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

Atlas Lions

It will be Tunisia's first FIFA World Cup involvement since 2006 in Germany, and it joins Morocco, Egypt, Senegal and Nigeria as Africa's five representatives for Russian Federation 2018.

Juventus defender Medhi Benatia was on target as Morocco qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1998.

Tunisia and Morocco on Saturday joined Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal on the FIFA World Cup train to Russian Federation next June.

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

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.

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

India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy. On October 11, Pakistan had designated former Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani to the ICJ to be its Judge in Jadhav's case.

Ivory Coast, who never looked like recovering from the first-half blows, came second with eight points followed by Gabon with six and Mali with four.

Dirar's in-swinging cross beat everyone and found the corner of the net in the 25th minute.

Tunisia survived some nervous moments in Rades as Libya finished strongly.

Two goals in stoppage time - a Jonathan Bolingi penalty and a fine Neeskens Kebano strike - gave DR Congo the victory, but it proved not to matter as Tunisia held on for the draw in the other game to win the group by a single point.

Aurier might have given the hosts a chance to launch a fight back in the final 20 minutes, but he blasted the ball wildly over the bar with the goal at his mercy.

Jonathan Bolingi put the Congolese Lions ahead again two minutes into additional time and Neeskens Kebano added a third goal nearly immediately. Before today's matches, Tunisia had 13 points while DR Congo had 10 points.
