Noureddine Naybet kept Mido at bay as the Spurs team-mates met in the African Nations Cup in Cairo on Tuesday.

However, despite holding out for a goalless draw against the hosts in a disappointing encounter, veteran defender Noureddine's Moroccan side are on the brink of elimination from the tournament.

Ivory Coast beat Libya in the other Group A game on Tuesday to book their place in the quarter-finals while the draw left Mido's Egypt on four points.

It means Morocco have to beat Libya in their final fixture and hope Ivory Coast can maintain their 100 per cent winning start to the group against Egypt if they are to stand any chance of going through.
