Ivory coach coach Marc Wilmots voiced confidence ahead of the Elephants' decider against Morocco in the World Cup qualifiers, saying his side are fully ready for the crucial clash.

The Ivory Coast host Morocco in a do-or-die game on Saturday as they have no choice but to win to secure a World Cup berth.

With one game to spare, Morocco are on top of Group C with nine points, just one ahead of second-placed Ivory Coast.

"We are 200% ready for Morocco," Wilmots told a news conference on Tuesday.

''We know well what to do against Morocco to earn the ticket for Russia.

"Our Fans will have a big role to play in this crucial clash. I invite them to support their national team on Saturday."

Ivory Coast are looking for their fourth straight World Cup appearance while Morocco, who made four appearances in the football's most prestigious showpiece, are aiming to qualify for the first time since 1998.
