The Lions of Senegal at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar


 Senegal qualified for the World Cup in Qatar on Tuesday after knocking out Egypt after the suspense and on penalties (1-0, 3-1 on pens).

Sadio Mané will be there, not Mohamed Salah. The remake of the 2022 African Cup of Nations final, won by Senegal on penalties, has again turned in favor of the "Lions", who will play their third World Cup next November after 2002 and 2018.

At the end of a penalty session during which "Mo" Salah missed the target, it was his Liverpool teammate who gave him victory to the Senegalese


In the first leg, Egypt had nevertheless taken the lead (1-0). And Salah was not for nothing since he had provoked the goal against his side of Saliou Ciss.

But on Tuesday, it was the Abdoulaye-Wade stadium, in Diamniadio, near Dakar, which exploded with joy, twice. In the very first minutes of the meeting first, when Boulaye Dia erased the Senegalese delay following a free kick from Idrissa Gueye (1-0, 3rd). Then in the very last seconds, when Mané scored the decisive third shot on goal.

Carried by their impressive public, also adept at using lasers to disrupt their opponent, Aliou Cissé's men first multiplied their chances.

Like the two attempts by Ismaïla Sarr captured by Mohamed El-Shenawy (28th, 32nd), that of Nampalys Mendy (42nd) who grazed the left post or even a cross from Bouna Sarr narrowly exited by Emam Ashour in front Ismaïla Sarr before the break.

Little dangerous, the Egyptians waited for the second period to be more enterprising.

The Pharaohs could even have cooled the atmosphere when Zizo's header and then the shot (70th, 75th) twice came to give a warning to the Senegalese while for his part, Ismaïla Sarr, alone against the goalkeeper, missed the target (82nd).

In extra time, it was Mohamed El-Shenawy who stood out, winning several times to prevent his team from being crunched by the Lions.

But that was only delaying the moment when they were finally going to roar, once again, with pleasure.
