W/Cup decider: Morocco coach upbeat ahead of I/Coast showdown
The Morocco national football team is qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.
Morocco sealed its place by winning in Ivory Coast 2-0 in what was a straight shootout for the place from Group C.
Leaders Atlas Lions, managed by Herve Renard, who led the Ivoirians to the Africa Cup of Nations title two years ago, had nine points and needed just a draw to qualify for the Mundial, while second-place Elephants with eight points, needed a win.
As it stands, a total of 26 teams around the world have guaranteed their participation at next year's World Cup, as 6 teams from play-offs will complete the lineup by next week.
Tunisia, coached by Nabil Maaloul, who played for Hannover 96 in between 1989 and 1991, will lead the country to their fifth World Cup - but first since the 2006 tournament hosted by Germany.
Earlier on Saturday in Group B, a stoppage-time goal from Banana Yaya gave Cameroon a 2-2 draw away against Zambia in Ndola.
Morocco's victory over the West African giants means three countries from North Africa made it to Russian Federation with Egypt and Tunisia having qualified already.
DR Congo, meanwhile, had needed Libya to pull off a shock win to give them hope of making it to Russian Federation, but were left disappointed despite a 3-1 win over Guinea in Kinshasa, scoring twice in stoppage time.
Rattled Ivory Coast fell further behind as they failed to cut off a corner and Juventus defender Benatia struck a first-time shot into the net. Had Tunisia lost, the two teams would have finished level on points and goal difference and Congo would have taken the World Cup place for scoring more goals in the qualifying campaign.
