Liverpool’s Sadio Mane had spoken about learning from experience in the days leading to Senegal’s Africa Cup of Nations final with Egypt, but even he never imagined the circumstances of Sunday night at the Olembe Stadium.
You wonder what went through his head as he made that long walk from the halfway line, departing from his expectant team-mates, and with the weight of an entire nation on his shoulders.
Senegal had never come this close to AFCON success. For sure, they had played in two finals before Sunday, losing on spot-kicks against Cameroon’s golden generation two decades back and failing to recover from Algeria’s early effort in 2019.
