9Janewshub.com.ng reports that the star player and striker for the Pharaoh of Egypt Mohamed Salah could not controlled his tears as his team were beaten by the Terenga of Lions at the African Cup of Nation final in Cameroon.
The duo of Sadio Mane of Senegal and Muhamed Salah of Egypt are currently star players for the English Premier League giant club, Liverpool FC with both scoring over 100 hundred goals for the club, but have to defend their national team in a fierce 120 minutes game held at Olembe Stadium, Yahunde Cameroon.
The Teranga Lions of Senegal beat the Pharaohs of Egypt via penalty shootout to win their first Africa Cup of Nations as the curtain finally fell on the 33rd edition of the continental premier soccer competition.
In the match Senegal dominated, Sadio Mane missed a fifth minute penalty and while they tried to score at full and extra time proved abortive, the Teranga Lions rose to the occasion at the penalty shootout to beat Egypt 4-2.
It is a huge relief for Coach Cisse who managed the Lions of Teranga to the final of the 32nd edition in Egypt where Desert Foxes of Algeria beat them 1-0.
The coach who came close to winning the title as a player 20 years ago was over excited as Mane who had earlier missed a spot kick delivered the last kick to hand the title to his countrymen, thus making them first time winners of the competition.
