Group summary
Over-zealous neighbourhood rivalry between fans of Senegal and Gambia marred this group which turned out to be a stroll in the sun for the Lions. Senegal ended their campaign unbeaten and conceded just one goal, but the Gambians also underlined their status as potential Nations Cup contenders.

Senegal's first game after their World Cup exploits in the Far East saw them win in Lesotho and they did not play again for another six months before a tense goalless draw in Banjul. That result set up a group decider in Dakar which saw fighting break out between rival supporters and attacks on Senegalese nationals in Banjul while Gambians in Dakar were also attacked.
