Sadio Mane's Senegal take on Mo Salah's Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations final in Cameroon today February 6, 2022.

AFCON, CAMEROON: It’s a clash of two Liverpool superstars in tonight’s Africa Cup of Nations final as Mo Salah’s Egypt take on Sadio Mané’s Senegal at 8pm local time (10pm EAT). You can follow the action live on Supersport Football Plus Channel (222), and also on Sanyuka TV and UBC Television in Uganda.

The Teranga Lions who came into the tournament as favourites have lived up to their expectation with Liverpool star Sadio Mané providing lacerating pace, dazzling creativity and clinical finishing skills.

Not only that, Senegal also arguably have the best shot-stopper playing today in the shape of Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy. Napoli’s rock-solid defensive linchpin Kalidou Koulibaly and PSG box-to-box midfielder Idrissa Gueye – Senegal’s two world-class stars – have the field between the goalposts and upfront covered.

While their semifinal victory over Cameroon exemplified Egypt’s cool determination, the Pharaohs’ previous win over Morocco exhibited another prime reason why they could take the trophy: Mo Salah.

Despite the presence of some highly competent players – the likes of striker David Trezeguet and right-back Omar Kamal – Egypt frankly lack the star talent Senegal have scattered around their lineup. But so far they have more than made up for it with Salah’s presence.
