Title defenders Senegal are hungry for more

In a thrilling conclusion to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), Senegal clinched their first-ever title by defeating Egypt in a penalty shootout. The final, which remained goalless through 90 minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of extra time, saw Sadio Mane’s redemption story unfold. Despite missing a penalty in the first half, Mane confidently converted the winning penalty kick in the shootout, securing Senegal’s historic AFCON championship. Senegal dominated the match from the start, with notable performances from players like Saliou Ciss, Ismaila Sarr, and Ahmadou Bamba Dieng.

Despite Egypt’s goalkeeper Mohamed Abougabal making crucial saves, Senegal’s relentless attack and Mane’s decisive penalty ultimately sealed the victory. Mane’s exceptional contributions throughout the tournament, with three goals and two assists, earned him the title of AFCON Player of the Tournament. The triumph marked a memorable day for Senegal’s manager Aliou Cisse, who, after captaining the team two decades ago, now led them to glory as a coach.
