(Video) Blistering counter-attack sees Sadio Mane net to send Senegal to AFCON final

Posted by

Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has been his country’s hero during Wednesday evening’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON) semi-final.

Senegal, who were drawn to face Burkina Faso in the competition’s penultimate round, have reached the final after beating Wednesday’s opponents 3-1.

Mane was again his side’s main man again after an 87th-minute counter-attacker saw the Liverpool forward in acres of space before cooly slotting his effort past his opponent’s goalkeeper.

Cameroon is set to play Egypt on Thursday in the other semi-final with the possibility of Mane facing teammate Mo Salah in the final becoming increasingly more likely.
