Liverpool’s Sadio Mane spares Senegal’s blushes with dramatic 97th-minute winner at AFCON | Football | Sport
Senegal’s victory over Zimbabwe was the third match of the AFCON after the tournament had got underway on Sunday.
Hosts Cameroon opened the competition with a 2-1 victory over Burkina Faso, before Cape Verde defeated Ethiopia 1-0.
A whole host of Premier League stars have jetted off to play in Cameroon, with Mane’s Liverpool team-mates Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita both involved.
Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez will line-up for Algeria, as will West Ham’s Said Benrahma.
Arsenal have five players lining-up at the tournament, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who could soon be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium after being stripped of the captaincy due to a disciplinary breach.
In fact, there are just three Premier League sides who don’t have any players involved in the AFCON.
