Liverpool teammates Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will go from friends to foes when Egypt take on Senegal in the Africa Cup of Nations finals at the Stade Omnisport Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaoundé on Sunday evening.


The Lions of Teranga made their way into the final after they secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over Burkina Faso at the same venue through goals from Famara Diedhiou, Cheikhou Kouyaté and, of course, Sadie Mane while Blati Touré’s 82nd-minute goal proved to be a consolation.

In contrast, the Pharaohs secured their place in the final after they defeated host nation Cameroon 3-1 on penalties after the game ended goalless after 120 minutes of play on Thursday night.


Having scored and assisted in Senegal’s semi-final win over Equatorial Guinea in the semi-final, much of the nation will be expected Mane to lead them across the line to secure their first Afcon title, having been runners up in 2002 and most recently 2019.

For Egypt, Mohamed Abou Gabal is expected to play a crucial role in the final in the absence of number one goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy after he made two penalty saves against Harold-Desty Moukoudi and James Léa Siliki to earn his side a place in the final.

Senegal boss Aliou Cisse will be boosted by having a completely fit squad for the final, with no injuries or suspensions, while Egyptian mentor Carlos Queiroz will still be without the services of Mohamed El Shenawy and Akram Tawfik, who are currently mending a hamstring and a crucial ligament injury, respectively.

Possible Starting Lineup:

 Edouard Mendy, Bouna Sarr, Kalidou Koulibaly, Abdou Diallo, Saliou Ciss, Cheikhou Kouyaté, Idrissa Gueye, Nampalys Mendy, Bamba Dieng, Sadie Mane, Famara Diedhiou.

Egypt: Mohamed Abou Gabal, Omar Kamal, Mohamed Abdelmonem, Amar Hamdy, Ahmed Abou El Fotouh, Amr El Solia, Mohamed Ashraf, Mohamed Elneny, Mohamed Salah, Omar Marmoush, Mostafa Mohamed.
