Full-time: Senegal 3-1 Burkina Faso.
Sadio Mané goal has sealed Africa Cup of Nations final place for Senegal
Senegal are into the Africa Cup of Nations for the third time in their history and their second in two tournaments! Can they win one at last? They’ll certainly be difficult to stop.
They’re formidably solid and savvy and have unique ingenuity in Sadio Mané. The question that will be answered after tomorrow’s other semi-final is: will we get a Mané v Salah showdown in the final? Or will Aliou Cissé get a chance to beat Cameroon in Cameroon 2o years after missing a penalty against them in Senegal’s first appearance in the final?
Burkina Faso played with tremendous heart and method. They were a credit to their country but just didn’t have enough to overcome Senegal.
