Group D had been labelled
as the 'group of death', even stronger than group A. With Nigeria, Tunisia,
and Morocco it contained three World Cup starters from France 98.
Congo had been outsiders
but with their committed performance embarrassed all three big names
Nigeria rallied to display
their class against the two other big names and Morocco eventually were
the victims in an awfully close decision on goals scored.
Nigeria marched on, only
to lose the final on penalties, while Tunisia finished in fourth place.
With two teams among the last four the group eventually proved it had deserved
Nigeria became vice-champions,
Tunisia fisnished in fourth place, both beaten on penalties
