- 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.

"It's poor poor goalkeeping!"
Tunisia stopper Mouez Hassen won't want to watch that again ?
