Senegal’s star, Sadio Mane had missed a penalty in the opening minutes in the first half, which could have allowed them win early enough without dragging the match to 120 minutes and subsequently penalty shoot out.
It was also Mane that scored the crucial penalty that crowned Senegal as African champion
