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

Tunisia finished on 14 points in Group A of the African qualifiers, one ahead of the Democratic Republic of Congo, who fell short despite a 3-1 win over Guinea in Kinshasa at the same time.

Unbeaten Tunisia have been to four previous World Cup finals and were the first African country to win a game at the finals, in 1978.

They were denied a fifth win in six group matches as Libya’s goalkeeper Mohamed Nashnush made a number of key stops.
