Senegal recorded a 3-0 win over Botswana in Dakar to end their successful 2015 Africa Nations Cup Qualifying campaign in style.

The Teranga Lions finished second in Group G and Tunisia top after their 2-1 win over Egypt in Monastir.

The Zebras were forced to make changes to the team that started against Tunisia on the weekend because Boitumelo Mafoko and Edwin Olerile were out with suspension.

Senegal took full advantage of a weakened Botswana side and Kara Mbodj put Senegal ahead on with a header off a corner kick by Pape Kouly Diop after 21 minutes.

Papiss Cisse doubled their advantage after 26 minutes off a cross from Moussa Sow from the right flank.

Then, in the 72nd minute, Sow put himself on the scoresheet thanks to another assist by Pape Kouly Diop.
