Senegal ended Tunisia’s hopes of  winning a second  African Cup of Nations title as they hosted the cup in 2004 and won it.

Individually, Tunisia and Senegal   wasted   a number of chances -including a penalty for both teams

Getting to the hundredth minute of the game, Senegal had a free kick resulting in an own goal from the Tunisia’s player, Dylan bronn as the shot deflected into his own net.

Senegal are through to the finals as they meet the winner from the second semi-final match, Nigeria against Algeria.

Through the game, Tunisia were honored with a penalty at the seventy-two minute, Ferjani Sassi, the man for Tunisia sent the penalty towards the bottom left corner, but the Senegal’s goal keeper pulls off a wonder save to deny him.

Ten minutes afterwards, Senegal also were honored with a penalty and Henri Saivet from Senegal did not take advantage of the chance to score from the penalty spot.

It was a very strong game. With the two sides very good. Senegal never left their guard off and now they are through to the final of the African cup of Nations.

The Africa Cup of Nations final takes place at Cairo International Stadium on Friday, July 19, at 7:00pm GMT.
