Morocco has qualified for its first FIFA World Cup since 1998 after beating closest Group C challenger Ivory Coast 2-0 away from home on Sunday (AEDT), and Tunisia is through too after a 0-0 draw with Libya.

But as it turned out, Morocco condemned the hosts to stay at home, with two goals in the first half by Nabil Dirar and Medhi Benati, scored within five minutes.

It will be Tunisia's first FIFA World Cup involvement since 2006 in Germany, and it joins Morocco, Egypt, Senegal and Nigeria as Africa's five representatives for Russian Federation 2018.

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. The Moroccan national team is 45 minutes from securing its ticket to the 2018 Russia World Cup.

Tunisia could not break down neighbours Libya in Rades on the outskirts of Tunis and had to settle for a 0-0 draw that was just enough to see them first over the finishing line.

Senegal sealed a place in Russia Friday by winning 2-0 in South Africa and the other two African qualifiers, Nigeria and Egypt, secured slots last month. Nine minutes after, the Guinea's Karamokoba Keita cancelled the goal.

Congo DR had created a scare earlier on, when they they led Guinea by 1-0, with an own goal by Ousmane Sidibe in the 62nd minute.

That result eliminated the Ivorians from the tournament in Russian Federation in 2018, while Tunisia also qualified at the expense of DR Congo.

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.
