Senegal were crowned 2021 Africa Cup of Nations champions after defeating Egypt 4-2 on penalties following a 0-0 draw in the final on Sunday night.
Sadio Mane netted the winning spot-kick as the West African side clinched their first-ever Afcon title – denying Egypt a record-extending eighth continental trophy.
The Liverpool star had seen his penalty saved just seven minutes into the game by Egypt goalkeeper Mohamed Abou Gabal, who was named Man of the Match, but Mane held his nerve when he returned in the shootout.
Mane, who scored three times and provided two assists during the competition, was named Player of the Tournament and many fans took to social media to react to the enthralling encounter.
Check out how Twitter reacted to Senegal’s win over Egypt:

Senegal deserve that Afcon after nearly moments in the past. Lost back to back Afcon finals against Cameroon in the early 2000’s and last Afcon final. Well done

Senegal are the champions of Africa! Congratulations to them. They deserve it. But to be honest, that Egyptian goalkeeper; there’s more to him o. I wish a better club can sign him other than the Zamalek he currently plays for. pic.twitter.com/vpYITJf80J

Senegal first AFCON title. They deserve this win after a fantastic performance. Wonderful save from mendy, another trophy and medal in the bag. #SENEGY 💙
Egypt were trash the whole game and didn’t deserve the win and it was obvious they wanted to win the easy way thru pens because they couldn’t beat a strong senegal team. Im glad Senegal won it.
