Morocco Outclass CIV To Seal World Cup Spot, Tunisia Through

Tunisia, Morocco, reach Russia 2018

Moroccan fans have set up riots in the center of Brussels, Belgium, after Morocco defeated Côte d'Ivoire 2-0 in the qualifying round for the next World Cup in Russia, AFP reported.

In the 1978 edition there was Tunisia, in the 1982 World Cup there were Algeria and Kuwait and in the 1986 tournament there were Iraq, Algeria and Morocco.

Morocco won 2-0 against Ivory Coast, securing their place in World Cup in Russian Federation next year.

"Therefore you have to play without sparing yourself in order to win it...but defeat never crossed my mind" Renard who coached the Ivorians to the 2015 title of the African Nations Cup in Equatorial Guinea said.

However, it was the visitors, who sealed an emphatic win as Dirar grabbed the opener in the 25th minute with after his tricky cross beat Sylvain Gbohouo, in goal for the Ivoirians.


Goals from Nabil Dirar and Medhi Benatia handed Morocco a 2-0 away win over Ivory Coast, securing a return to the finals for the first time in two decades.

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.

Had Tunisia lost, they would have ceded top place to DR Congo, who finished strongly to overcome Guinea 3-1.

Ibenge's side will look back at their double header against the Tunisians, when they enjoyed the better of both contests but only took one point out of a possible six, as the reason why they will be watching on from the outside next summer.

Needing just a point at home to already-eliminated Libya to assure their progression, they labored to a goalless draw.
