How and where to watch Ivory Coast v Morocco

Tunisia booked their place in next year's World Cup finals after securing a point from a goalless draw at home against their neighbors Libya.

North African giants Morocco and Tunisia joined the list of sides to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after a dramatic day of qualifying matches in Africa.

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.

Morocco sealed its place by winning 2-0 in Cote d'Ivoire in what was a straight shootout for the place from Group C.

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

They were nervy from the off in Saturday's decisive clash, where they knew that only a win against former coach Herve Renard - the man who masterminded their AFCON success in 2015 - would be enough to pip the Atlas Lions into top spot.

African champions Cameroon also secured a 2-2 draw away to Zambia in their inconsequential final Group B World Cup qualifier in Ndola thanks to a late goal from defender Yaya Banana.

Fenerbahce winger Nabil Dirar put Morocco ahead on 25 minutes when his cross from the right dropped into the Ivory Coast net, before captain Medhi Benatia swiftly doubled the lead on the half-hour following a corner.

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

With second-place Democratic Republic of Congo netting twice in stoppage time to defeat Guinea 3-1 in Kinshasa, only one point separated the top two.
