Senegal began their Africa Cup of Nations title defence with a 3-0 victory over 10-man Gambia on Monday. Lamine Camara was on target twice for the champions in the Group C clash.

Pape Gueye scored in the opening minutes of the game before  Ligue 1 side Metz's Camara added two more to ensure victory for the champions.

Gueye put Senegal ahead in the fourth minute at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium, while 20-year-old Camara underlined his promise with a fine finish seven minutes after the break and a sublime second into the top corner four minutes from time. Cameroon and Guinea meet later on Monday in the second Group C game in the Ivorian capital.
