Tunisia, Morocco, reach Russia 2018

Nigeria were the first African nation to book a place in Russian Federation after last month's 1-0 win over Zambia in Uyo with Egypt and Senegal, who beat South Africa 2-0 in a replayed game in Polokwane on Friday, having also qualified.

Other nations which also qualified for the last two editions but have been humbled are Ghana, Ivory Coast, Algeria and Cameroon.

Morocco qualified for the first time since the 1998 World Cup.

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.

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.

Serge Aurier had the best chance to score for Ivory Coast in the second half, but he skied his shot over the bar, and Morocco maintained their record of not conceding a single goal in the six games in CAF qualifying Group C.

The first blow came when an intended cross from Dirar went over an Ivorian defender and a Moroccan attacker and slipped past goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo into the far corner.

But after weathering an early storm, including a potential penalty call, Morocco scored two goals in the space of five minutes to put themselves on their way to the finals, where their last appearance was in France in 1998.

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

Morocco beat Cote d'Ivoire 2-0 away in their final group game while Tunisia's 0-0 home draw against Libya was enough to seal their qualification.
