After the kickoff, Mauritania came close to breaking the deadlock six minutes in, only for Adama Ba’s free-kick to be tipped on to the post by Khairalah Mohammed.
They got the opener in the 18th minute. Ba played a palatial long ball over the top and Diakite controlled it, firing it home.
Yemen’s hurdle got a whole lot steeper shortly before the break. Mudir Al-Radaei handled the ball to halt an attack and was sent off.
