AFCON 2022 Senegal vs Egypt Result And Score

On Sunday, February 6, Aliou Cissé’s team defeated Egypt 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out. The Teranga Lions defeated Mo Salah’s Pharaohs in Yaoundé’s Olembé stadium.

For Mané’s teammates, this triumph marks the culmination of an entire tournament. Mohamed Abou Gabal, the Egyptian goalie, made a save in the fourth minute. The Senegalese’s fingertips were not burned by this failed penalty. Despite having 57 percent ball control, the Senegalese were up against an outstanding Egyptian goalkeeper.

Senegal defeated Egypt 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out to win their first Africa Cup of Nations championship after the final ended goalless at the end of extra time on Sunday. Sadio Mane made amends for missing from the spot in normal time by scoring the deciding penalty.

Mane had seen Mohamed Abou Gabal save his seventh-minute penalty at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde, but Egypt were unable to capitalise, and the game proceeded to extra time for the fourth time in this Cup of Nations.

Cameroon came back from 3-0 down to tie the game at 3-3 before beating Burkina Faso 5-3 in a penalty shootout in the African Cup of Nations third-place match on Saturday.


It won’t make up for the host team’s disappointment at missing out on the final, but it did mean Cameroon finished the tournament on a positive note.

When Djibril Ouattara scored a header in the 49th minute, it appeared unlikely that Burkina Faso would win. Cameroon’s fortunes were turned around when tournament top scorer Vincent Aboubakar came on as a second-half substitute.
