AFCON final: Senegal new African champion, wins Egypt 4-2 on penalties
Sadio Mane puts penalty miss behind him to score winning spot-kick in the shootout
Sadio Mane scored the winning penalty to secure a shootout win over Mohamed Salah’s Egypt; Mane missed an early penalty but his redemption was complete as Senegal secured a 4-2 win on penalties
A total of seven shots on target (Senegal 5, Egypt 2) but none made it past the keepers. Senegal missed a penalty and fired several free-kicks over the bar.
Egypt will be happy with what’s going on. Their fourth consecutive extra-time appearance at AFCON this year. And they won the last three to seal their spot in the final.
