They'll join Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal as the continent's five representatives at next year's tournament in Russian Federation.

In the 1990 World Cup UAE and Egypt qualified, in the 1994 World Cup Saudi Arabia and Morocco participated and in the 1998 World Cup in Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Tunisia were there.

Morocco is back in the spotlight of world soccer following the qualification of the country's national team to the 2018 World Cup, scheduled to take place next summer in Russian Federation.

The five African representatives for the 2018 FIFA World Cup was confirmed on Saturday after Morocco and Tunisia secured their qualification from Group C and A respectively.

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.

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.

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. The Tunisians held on for the draw, though, and it turned out to be a precious point.

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.
