Hope and magic for Senegal

Latest update : 2008-01-26

For their first match of the competition, Senegal will play against Tunisia. In a country where people are strongly superstitious, football is far from being only a game. (FRANCE24 Report: T.Mossot, C.Moore)

ACCRA, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Injured Birmingham City
midfielder Mehdi Nafti is unlikely to start for Tunisia when
they meet Senegal in their opening African Nations Cup match in
Tamale on Wednesday, officials said.

Nafti, who was part of the Tunisian side when they won the
2004 edition, suffered a calf injury in his last game for his
club before the tournament, against Manchester United on Jan.
1.

He is due to face a fitness test before the Group D match
but trained separately from the team on Monday.
