African Games 1987

 
QUALIFYING STAGE

Kenya qualified as host.
Matches with missing scores are presumed to have been walkovers.

Zone 1  [Tunisia qualified]

11- 1-87 Tunisia       0-2 Algeria        [result annulled by CAF]
21- 2-87 Algeria        -  Tunisia        [Algeria withdrew]
Note: Algeria withdrew in protest at CAF's decision to order a replay of the first leg;
      CAF had made this decision following Tunisia's protest that Algeria had fielded
      two ineligible players.  Also, apparently as a form of extra punishment, CAF
      rescinded an earlier decision to appoint Algeria as the replacement host of the 
      1988 African Cup of Nations finals (replacing original host Zambia), and awarded
      them to Morocco instead.
