Morocco's win in Abidjan gave coach Herve Renard success over his former team and the country he led to the African Cup title in 2015. Before today's matches, Morocco had 9 points while the Ivorians had 8 points; meaning the victor of the match would qualify.

Full back Serge Aurier had the Ivory Coast's best chance shortly after the hour mark when he blazed over in acres of space before Noureddine Amrabat nearly killed the game on the break but a further cushion wasn't needed. The Tunisians held on for the draw, though, and it turned out to be a precious point.

Meanwhile, in Group A, Tunisia played out a tense goalless draw with Libya to edge Congo DR to top spot by just one point.

Immediately after Morocco's national team secured it qualification to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Moroccans of NY flocked to Steinway street in Astoria to celebrate this victory.
