The wait continues for Egypt for an eighth AFCON title
[Reuters] Possession, shots on goal, tackles, nothing matters when the clock goes past the 120th minute.
Egypt were the Pharaohs of extra-time in the knockouts this year and Gabaski held firm in between the posts right from the start.
But Senegal found the net when it mattered. And Salah didn’t even get around to taking his penalty.
Loud noise as Mane, holding the Senegalese flag, is running around the track to celebrate with the fans who witness this moment for the first time in the country’s history.
