Must Read

In a tense atmosphere, Senegal managed to win the CAN 2021 by beating Egypt on penalties. The men of Aliou Cissé installed very quickly a certain domination on the meeting. The actions multiplied, but they were stopped by an excellent Gabaski. At the end of 120 minutes of play, Sadio Mané and his teammates won the game (4 to 2) and broke the Egyptian myth. Senegal is champion of Africa 2021.


Elected “Best Player” of the CAN 2021, it is a very happy Sadio Mané who will return home Monday after winning the competition with the Lions. Just after the final, the Liverpool striker did not hide his emotions and his pleasure to have finally won an African Cup with Senegal. A trophy that, for him, will remain the most important of his career.

“I said it after the CAN 2019 and I will repeat it. For me, the CAN is the best of all the trophies I will win in my career and in my life. The others will be bonuses. Winning this competition has always been a dream for me and I did it with all my teammates. I am happy and proud and I don’t have the words.”

Like his teammates, Edouard Mendy has just won his first African Cup with the Senegalese team. A real revenge for the Chelsea keeper after the disappointment of 2019 and the defeat against Algeria in the final. “Our players were also exceptional because they shot very well. I knew I had to help my team by stopping at least one shot and that’s what I did, thank God. We’ve been working on penalty kicks in practice because we knew we were going to go for it. So we answered present”, he said.
