How and where to watch Ivory Coast v Morocco

First half goals from Fenerbahçe right-back Nabil Dirar and Juventus centre-back Medhi Benatia helped Morocco beat Ivory Coast 2-0 on Saturday in a highly-temperamental Group C final World Cup qualifier in Abidjan and seal one of Africa's final two slots for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Police in Belgium hit back as Moroccans celebrated their national team's 2-0 win over Ivory Coast to book their spot in the planet's biggest sport tournament.

Meanwhile, Tunisia on Saturday booked their place in next year's finals after securing a point from a goalless draw at home against neighbors Libya.

Morocco have now qualified for their fifth World Cup (1970, 1986, 1994, 1998) and their first since France 1998.

Morocco needed only a draw in their last group game to finish top of the Group C standings in the African preliminaries, ahead of the Ivorians, who had to win to clinch a fourth successive World Cup finals appearance.

"If these allegations are true, he must step aside", McConnell said in a formal statement on behalf of all Republican senators. The Post quoted four women on the record and had 30 sources in total.

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.

The Atlas Lions went into the match in Abidjan just needing a draw to consolidate their place as pacesetters in the final group match, but they went one better in what was an assured display.

Guinea's Ousmane Sidibe headed into his own net from a set piece after the hour mark, but the West Africans equalised 10 minutes later through Keita Karamokoba.

DR Congo scored twice in stoppage time through Jonathan Bolingi and Neeskens Kebano to defeat Guinea 3-1 in Kinshasa.
