Tunisia also only needed a draw to pip DR Congo - who began the day three points adrift - to top spot in Group A and they duly accomplished that with a 0-0 stalemate at home to Libya.

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.

Tunisia guaranteed top spot in World Cup qualifying Group A and secured their ticket to Russian Federation despite being held 0-0 at home by Libya on Saturday.

Tunisia and Morocco have completed the roster of teams that would represent Africa at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup. Before today's matches, Morocco had 9 points while the Ivorians had 8 points; meaning the victor of the match would qualify.

"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.

More than 20 police officers were injured in Brussels when celebrations over Morocco's qualification for football's World Cup turned violent.

Tunisia finished on 14 points in Group A of the African preliminaries, one ahead of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Guinea levelled the contest in the 71st minute through Karamokoba Keita, but two goals in stoppage time - Neeskens Kebano's strike and a Jonathan Bolingi penalty - secured a 3-1 victory for the hosts.
