The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament came to an end on Sunday, February 6, 2022 in the Olembé stadium of Yaoubdé, Cameroon.
Senegal won the tournament after beating 7-time Champion Egypt in a penalty shoot-out with a 4-2 win.
In the first half, the Senegalese team missed a penalty but this did not get their fingers burnt.
Tied 0-0 by the end of the second half, the two teams had to come back on the pitch. During extra-time goal-scoring chances on both sides didn’t turn into actual goals.
The penalty shoot-out eventually settled the squads. With two misses from the penalty spot, Egypt lost to the Senegal.
Prior to the penalty shoot-out, the Egyptian goalkeeper Mohamed Abou Gabaski as usual brought his alleged magic bottle on the pitch.
The bottle had details of where each Senegalese penalty taker placed most of their previous kicks. He however, left his magic bottle on the pitch after the defeat.
