Zambia won as Mayuka scores

Emmanuel Mayuka was in the starting lineup for Zambia's Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2015 qualifiers against Niger. Their first meeting ended in a goalless draw last Saturday but last night was a different story as Zambia ran out 3-0 winners. All the goals came in the second half, with Mayuka's goal in the 75th minute sandwiched by Rainford Kalaba's opener and Kennedy Mweene's penalty. Zambia will next play Mozambique and Cape Verde next month.

Senegal beaten as Mané features

But contrast to Mayuka, Sadio Mané was unable to help his side to victory as Senegal succumbed to Tunisia by a single goal. After the previous match between the two sides ended in a goalless draw last weekend, Ferjani Sassi's injury time winner prove to be the difference this time around. Senegal will travel to Egypt and close their qualification with a home game against Botswana next month.
