AFCON 2021: Mane reveals what Senegal players told him after Egypt’s Gabaski saved his penalty

Sadio Mane, the Senegal attacker, has revealed what his teammates told him after Egypt goalie Gabaski saved his penalty during his team’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final triumph over the Pharaohs on Sunday night.

Mane wasted a chance to put the Lions of Teranga ahead in the seventh minute when Gabaski saved his penalty.

The AFCON final ended 0-0 after 120 minutes, and after Egypt missed two penalty penalties, the Liverpool star summoned the guts to move up and score the game-winning goal for Senegal.
