CAIRO. — Senegal reached the Africa Cup of Nations final for the second time as Tunisia defender Dylan Bronn’s extra-time own goal gave them victory yesterday.
Both sides had penalties saved in normal time before Bronn inadvertently headed the only goal of the game.
Mouez Hassen tipped Sadio Mane’s free-kick onto Bronn’s head as Senegal — who face Algeria or Nigeria — moved a step closer to their first Afcon title.
Tunisia had a late penalty award overturned by VAR. Senegal dominated the first half, producing seven shots to Tunisia’s two, with Mane spurning their best opportunity when he missed an open goal.
Tunisia improved after the interval and were awarded a penalty when Ferjani Sassi’s effort struck Kalidou Koulibaly’s arm, but Sassi’s spot-kick lacked power and direction and was saved by Alfred Gomis. — BBC Sport.
