Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Zaire–Swaziland match was not played, as neither team could advance with a win.
  2. ^ The Angola–Togo match was not played, as neither team could advance with a win.
  3. ^ The result of the original Egypt–Zimbabwe match was annulled due to crowd violence; it was later replayed on neutral ground.
  4. ^ The second Egypt–Zimbabwe match took place in France instead on in Egypt due to the crowd violence that had caused the previous match's results to be annulled.
  5. ^ Libya was originally scheduled to play all of its matches away; however, it withdrew in protest to this ruling and due to the UN sanctions against it.
  6. ^ The Morocco–Ethiopia match was suspended after 51 minutes due to Ethiopia being reduced to seven players; the result was affirmed.
