Morocco beat Ivory Coast 2-nil away to confirm their place.

Goals from defenders Nabil Dirar and Medhi Benatia in Abidjan ensured that Morocco would finish as Group C winners.

After weathering an early storm, including a potential penalty call, Morocco scored 2 goals in the space of five minutes.

It is another achievement for Morocco’s French coach Herve Renard, who famously won the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast in 2015.

Tunisia also booked their place in next year’s finals after securing a point from a goalless draw at home to neighbours Libya on Saturday.
