Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah experienced a painful setback in the AFCON final when his country lost to Senegal on penalties on Sunday February 6.
The final, held at the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde, Cameroon, was advertised as a showdown between Liverpool teammates Mané and Mohamed Salah.
After extra time, the final score was 0-0. Senegal won 4-2 in the shoot-out after Sadio Mane, who had missed a penalty in the first half, scored the game-winning penalty. It was Senegal’s first AFCON title.
Salah sobbed after the game and had to be consoled by a Liverpool teammate before members of the Egyptian coaching staff arrived to console him.
