The Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal played out a nervy 1-1 draw in Casablanca in the second leg of the African World Cup qualifying play-off.
Following a 3-1 triumph for the Elephants in the first leg, the Lions of Teranga had an awful lot to do—particularly considering they were facing one of the most celebrated collection of players in African history. Senegal impressed on the night, and largely dominated the contest, leading one-nil until the dying moments. They were left imagining, surely, what might have been had they not lost their defensive wits during the first contest between the two teams.
Ultimately, it is the Golden Generation of the Cote d’Ivoire who advance to next summer’s World Cup.
