Morocco's bid for an Olympic spot in Australia 2000 took another step forward after they defeated their Tunisian neighbor.  


Al Anbaa daily reports that the match was decided during the first half when Abd al-Fatah al Khatari scored the first goal on the 15th minute and Issam al Barudi added the second on the 37th minute. The game was held last Sunday in Casablanca.  


This victory places Morocco at the head of the African group 4 with nine points. Other group teams are Egypt and the Ivory Coast.
