Sanag        abd Sahel     [abandoned due to scuffle between players]

Sanag        2-2 Sahel

  Sanag    - qualified (aka Sanaag)
  Sahel    - qualified (aka Saaxil)
  Awdal    - eliminated

NB: the Sep 27 replay result qualified both Sanag and Sahel, eliminating
    Awdal; the technical committee annulled the 2-2 result on the evening
    after the match alleging the match had been arranged, but withdrew
    that decision the following day, leading to furious protests by Awdal
    who withdrew.  Presumably all matches in this group were drawn but
    Awdal eliminated on goals scored.
