Senegal were two goals up in their qualifier with bottom placed Liberia, but slipped to second in their group following the draw with the bottom-placed country.
Habib Beye has retired from International football and Abdoulaye Faye did not play in the game for his native Senegal.
Nigeria (Oba Martins) are currently top their group with a 100% record after three games.
In other World Cup qualifying games yesterday, a shock for Brazil, as they were defeated 2-0 by Paraguay, in front of 35,000 spectators at the Defensores del Chaco stadium in Ascunsion.
Paraguay played with just 10 men after right back Dario Veron was handed a second yellow card for a tackle from behind, just 2 minutes into the second period.
Brazil now have a home qualifier with Argentina on Wednesday, and it looks like former captain and now coach, Dunga, is under some pressure.
