Also in African qualifying, midfielder Papy Mendy came off the bench for Cheikhou Kouyaté in the 72nd minute of Senegal’s comprehensive 4-1 success over Namibia.

Idrissa Gueye, Famara Diedhiou, Sadio Mané and Keita Baldé Diao were all on the scoresheet at Stade Lat Dior.

Senegal stay top of the Group H standings with a 100 per cent qualifying record following their first three fixtures.
