After a goalless 120 minutes, Egypt won the shootout 3-1, triumphing without Salah needing to step up to the spot. Former Tottenham Hotspur winger Clinton N’Jie was the third and final player to miss a penalty for Cameroon.
On Wednesday, Mane became Senegal’s joint-highest international goalscorer in his semi-final, leading his country to a 3-1 win over Burkina Faso.
Mane lifted in Senegal’s third goal on 87 minutes after being played in by Watford‘s Ismaila Sarr, taking his tally to 29 goals for his country, matching former Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Henri Camara.
