Africa Cup of Nations: Senegal beat Egypt in shootout to clinch first title

Sadio Mane netted the winning spot-kick as Senegal beat Egypt 4-2 on penalties to clinch their first-ever Africa Cup of Nations.

After 120 minutes of goalless action the match went into a shootout. Carlos Quiroz’s Egypt who had all their 4 knockout games going the same distance, missed one attempt but their keeper Gabaski kept them alive as he immediately saved a spot-kick.

Nevertheless, Chelsea's Edouard Mendy denied another attempt to give Mane the chance to win it for Senegal. And the Liverpool forward smashed-in an emphatic finish into the bottom left to fire Senegal into their first ever continental title, leaving Mohammad Salah and the Egyptian fans in tears.
