AFCON2021: Senegal win its 1st AFCON title after beating Egypt on penalties

Senegal won the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time on Sunday, February 6, after defeating Egypt on penalties.
Senegal won the shootout 4-2 after Sadio Mane, who had missed a chance in the first half, converted the game-winning penalty.
After extra time, the final score was 0-0.
The final, held at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde, Cameroon, was advertised as a showdown between Liverpool teammates Mané and Mohamed Salah.
Egypt goalkeeper Gabaski was named man of the match as he kept Senegal at bay throughout the 90 minutes and then produced an excellent save to deny substitute Bamba Dieng in extra-time.
Senegal had lost two finals previously, including at the last African Cup in Egypt in 2019, when Mané was left inconsolable
