Mali recorded an impressive 4-1 victory over Mauritania in their first 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) Group E match at the Suez Stadium in Egypt on Monday night.

The Lions of Chinguetti, who were making their debut in the finals, were able to contain the Eagles in the opening stages of the encounter.

Mali were forced to try their luck from range as the Mauritania defence looked solid and impenetrable.

However, the Eagles upped the tempo after the half-hour mark and they managed to break the deadlock through Abdoulaye Diaby.

However, Mali responded with a goal when second-half substitute Adama Traore I scored with a well-taken shot to make it 4-1 with 17 minutes left on the clock.
