Senegal have defeated Egypt 4-2 on penalties to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Senegal and Egypt went into extra time in Sunday’s AFCON final with the score 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes.

Sadio Mane squandered the chance to put Senegal ahead inside seven minutes in Yaounde when his penalty was saved by Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed Abou Gabal.

However, Mane made up for his first-half penalty miss by converting the winning spot-kick in a shoot-out as Senegal defeated Egypt to win a maiden AFCON title on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah’s Egypt were chasing a record-extending eighth AFCON title.

Salah and other Egyptian players wept as Senegal players and fans jubilated.
