African football pays tributes to Senegal stadium disaster victims

The world of African football is in mourning once again following the latest tragedy to hit the continental game, after eight football fans were killed when a wall collapsed during the Senegalese League Cup final on Saturday.

A further 49 supporters were reportedly injured following a panicked stampede for the exists after police had fired tear gas to disperse the crowd after fights between rival groups of fans.

The match between Stade de Mbour and US Ouakam – which was taking place at Dakar’s Stade Demba Diop – had finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, but the former had taken the lead with an extra-time goal, prompting the disturbance.

Uganda boss Milutin Sredojevic and former Chelsea and Senegal frontman Demba Ba were among some of the high-profile personalities of African football to have paid their tributes to the victims of the disaster.
