Tunisia complete Africa's World Cup line-up with Libya draw

Atlas Lions

Morocco has qualified for the World Cup in Russian Federation by winning in Ivory Coast 2-0 in what was a straight shootout for the place from Africa Group C.

It will be Tunisia's first World Cup involvement since 2006 in Germany, and they join Morocco, Egypt, Senegal and Nigeria as Africa's five representatives in Russian Federation.

Morocco sealed its place in Russian Federation in style as they went to Abidjan and beat Cote d'Ivoire 2-0.

Morocco maintained their record of not conceding a single goal in the six games in CAF qualifying Group C. Gabon and Mali drew 0-0 in the other final Group C encounter.

Magnitude 7.3 quake hits Iraq, Iran
But the governor of Qasr-e Shirin, Faramarz Akbari, said only two people had died in the town and 25 others were injured. The quake was even felt in the Iranian capital Tehran, with some villages hit by power cuts, Iranian state TV reported.

A pair of quickfire first half goals fired Morocco to their first World Cup in two decades and condemned Ivory Coast to a defeat that means they will miss the showpiece event for the first time since 2002.

Tunisia also only needed a draw to pip DR Congo - who began the day three points adrift - to top spot in Group A and they duly accomplished that with a 0-0 stalemate at home to Libya.

In the 1978 edition there was Tunisia, in the 1982 World Cup there were Algeria and Kuwait and in the 1986 tournament there were Iraq, Algeria and Morocco. Tunisia also booked their spot at Russian Federation 2018 with a tense 0-0 draw against Libya. But it was the Moroccans who got the breakthrough when Nabil Dirar's cross evaded everyone and found its way it to the net.

Tunisia finished on 14 points in Group A of the African preliminaries, one ahead of the Democratic Republic of Congo, who fell short despite a 3-1 win over Guinea in Kinshasa at the same time.
