Senegal was impressive in game but failed convert their chances, including a spotkick in the first half of the game.

However the skipper of the dream team Oghenekaro Etebo converted from the spot when a Senegalese defender collided with his own goal keeper and grabbed the ball with his hand to stop a Nigerian player from scoring. He was further shown a red card for handling the ball.
