Kayes
Kayes, more than 500km from the capital, is the centre of Mali's gold-mining area.

This brand new stadium is the first major sports arena the city has ever had.

The region is somewhat isolated and has been neglected in the past, so road access is difficult.

Those who can afford it fly, though there is a train line, which also runs to Senegal.

A big crowd is expected for the Lions' final group game against Tunisia.
