Morocco, Tunisia Last African Teams to Qualify for World Cup

CHAOS erupted in Brussels after Morocco secured their spot in the 2018 World Cup.

North African nations Morocco and Tunisia took contrasting routes on Saturday as they qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Morocco's victory over the West African giants means three countries from North Africa made it to Russian Federation with Egypt and Tunisia having qualified already.

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

Brussels, a city that is home to one of Europe's largest Moroccan communities, suffered the gross misbehaviour of football fans for nearly two hours.

According to the BBC, some celebrations turned violent in The Hague. Footage shows riot police dousing protesters with water cannons.

At one point water canon was sacked at small groups of people who were throwing stones. Street signs and furniture were also destroyed or damaged.

In the Netherlands, large groups of fans took the streets to rejoice.

"The fundamental problem is that such events are used as an excuse for reckless behaviour and doing unacceptable things", Interior Minister Jan Jambon told Belgium's Radio 1. He also said that living together means respect, also for the authorities who are committed to their safety.

Among all the national teams that competed for the qualification to the World Cup in the different continental federations belonging to FIFA, Morocco has emerged as the team with the best defense in the world.

Right after the victory, King Mohammed VI of Morocco called Renard and team captain Mehdi Benatia whom he congratulated for the landmark achievement.
