Tunisia, Morocco bag 2022 World Cup tickets

Baku, March 30, AZERTAC

Tunisia and Morocco went through to the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday, according to Anadolu Agency.

The Tunisian national team drew 0-0 with Mali at home, but it was enough to bag a ticket to Qatar because Tunisia won the first leg 1-0 when they visited Mali last week in Bamako.

Tunisia qualified for a World Cup tournament for the sixth time in history. They previously appeared at Russia 2018.

Morocco hammered DR Congo 4-1 to make their way to Qatar.

The Moroccan national team won 5-2 on aggregate.

Azzedine Ounahi scored twice against DR Congo, with Tarik Tissoudali and Morocco star Achraf Hakimi scoring once each to contribute to the home win in Casablanca.

Tunisia and Morocco have also now qualified for the World Cup finals six times.

Morocco last played at the 2018 World Cup hosted by Russia.

Cameroon, who missed the previous World Cup in 2018, advanced to Qatar 2022 after beating Algeria 2-1 after extra time.

Algeria won the first leg 1-0 in Cameroon last week.

But on Tuesday, Cameroon took the second leg to extra time after their forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored a first-half goal to level the tie.

Home team Algeria's defender Ahmed Touba scored in the 118th minute, but Cameroonian winger Karl Toko Ekambi scored in stoppage time to send his team to Qatar.

Cameroon have so far played in seven World Cup tournaments, and their last World Cup appearance was at Brazil 2014.
