Egypt 4 3 0 1 14 1 9
Madagascar 4 2 0 2 2 8 6
Mauritius 4 1 0 3 2 9 3

Group summary
This group started with a dramatic result but ended like a limp fish after promising a massive upset. Madagascar won their first two matches, including a 1-0 home win over Egypt to leave the north Africans nervous about their chances.

But the most successful side in Nations Cup history stole a priceless 1-0 win in Mauritius in March to stay in the race, then beat both island nations scoring a combined total of 13 goals in Port Said to stage an impressive comeback.

That left Madagascar needing to score an incredible 17 without reply in their final match in order to deny the Egyptians. The football historians should not have bothered!
