Senegal in Africa Cup of Nations final after 17 years wait

Jul 14, 2019 | African News | 0 comments

  • Senegal have reached the Africa Cup of Nations final for only the second time in their history after a bizarre own goal in extra time in Sunday’s semi-finals.

As a result, the Teranga Lions will wait to face the winner between either Algeria or Nigeria in Friday’s final.

Senegal seeking another continental title after 17 years, they were runners-in 2002 AFCON.

A terrible mistake by goalkeeper Moez Hassen in the 100th-minute allowed the ball to bounce off the head of defender Dylan Bronn into the net for the only goal of a game.

Hassen came flying off his goal-line to try to cut off a freekick from the right flank but completely missed the ball which then hit the unfortunate Bronn on the head.
