 Liverpool star Sadio Mane scored the winning penalty kick, as Senegal beat Egypt 4-2 on penalty kicks after the final finished 0-0 after 120 minutes.


Mane one on one with Egypt Goal Keeper

Mane missed a penalty kick early in the final, but he was the hero for The Lions of Teranga.


Mohamed Salah was left in tears, as he and his Egypt teammates just came up short after battling to get to penalty kicks for the third time in the knockout rounds as all four of their games in the latter stages of the tournament went to extra time.


A tournament ripe with Premier League players and prospects holds sway over an entire continent for nearly a month and it was sensational.


There has not been a repeat winner or finalist at AFCON since Egypt won at home in 2006 before claiming the 2008 tournament title in Ghana and the 2010 edition in Angola.


Algeria beat Senegal 1-0 in 2019 to triumph in Egypt and become the seventh nation to win multiple AFCONs, following Democratic Republic of Congo (1968, 1974), Ivory Coast (1992, 2015), Nigeria (1980, 1994, 2013), Ghana (1963, 1965, 1978, 1982), Cameroon (1984, 1988, 2000, 2002, 2017), and Egypt (1957, 1959, 1986, 1998, 2006, 2008, 2010).
