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

Atlas Lions

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.

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

North African nations Morocco and Tunisia took contrasting routes Saturday as they qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Tunisia also qualified on Saturday after drawing 0-0 with Libya.

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

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. In case of qualifying to the World Cup in Russian Federation, each player will receive $ 100,000.

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.

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.

Nabil Dirar eventually opened the scoring for the Lions of the Atlas on 25 minutes with a long range effort that found the bottom corner, 0-1.

Starting the final game three points behind Tunisia, Congo beat Guinea 3-1 in a whirlwind finish, when Congo scored twice in injury time. The Tunisians held on for the draw, though, and it turned out to be a precious point.

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