Cisse's Senegal Win 3-0

Last updated : 30 January 2004 By Brian Cartlidge

Cisse, as in the Lions Of Teranga's first game, played for the full ninety minutes of the 3-0 Group B win.

Mamadou Niang (2) and Pape Bouba Diop the goalscorers for Senegal.

The win put Senegal one point ahead at the top of the Group B table with 4 points although Mali, with three points from their opening game, play Burkina Faso (1 point) later today and a win for either side would mean The Lions having to beat Mali in their final group game on Monday to progress to the later stages of the competition.

Highlights of the game can be seen live on BBC Two tonight at 11.35pm GMT.

Senegal: Tony Sylva; Omar Daf, Ibrahima Faye, Pape Malick Diop, Aliou Cisse, Henri Camara, Salif Diao, Pape Bouba Diop, El Hadji Diouf, Ousmane Ndoye, Mamadou Niang.
