Tunisia recorded the highest win margin at the ongoing WAFCON after thrashing Togo 4-1 in Group B on Sunday.
The game saw the first sending off in the tournament as Togo’s Omolatcho Djankale was shown a straight red card with the score at 2-1.
Tunisia got off to the perfect start thanks to Mariem Houij who scored just one minute into the game.
In the 12th minute Sabrine Ellouzi made it 2-0 but Togo pulled a goal back on 22 minutes from the penalty spot converted by Odette Gnintegma.
Hopes of a possible comeback was dashed following sending off of Djankale nine minutes into the second half.
Tunisia capitalized and went 3-1 ahead on 60 minutes through Ellouzi before a 71st minute own goal by Ame Lila Amouklou made it 4-1.
In the second game in Group B also played on Sunday, the Indomitable Lionesses were forced to a goalless draw by Zambia.
Meanwhile, in the first game decided on Sunday, Senegal marked their return to the WAFCON with a 2-0 win against Uganda in Group A.
Senegal’s last appearance at the WAFCON was in the 2012 edition.
Goals in each half by Ndeye Diakhate (39th minute penalty) and Nguenar Ndiaye (50th minute), secured the win for the Senegalese.
