Morocco and Tunisia will join Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal as the African sides in Russian Federation next summer.

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 qualified for the World Cup after winning the group with 14 points. But it was the Moroccans who got the breakthrough when Nabil Dirar's cross evaded everyone and found its way it to the net.

The more industrious Moroccans caused more problems for their hosts five minutes later when Benatia slotted home Mbark Boussoufa's corner into the next to send the home fans into anguish, as the Lions sealed a first World Cup ticket since 1998. Before today's matches, Morocco had 9 points while the Ivorians had 8 points; meaning the victor of the match would qualify.
