Senegalese forward Sadio Mane, has made known the fact that playing for the the AFCON final for the second consecutive time, has never been easy for any team.
The Senegalese forward made mention of this after their three one win against the Stallions of Burkina Faso at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium in Yaounde, on Wednesday evening.
“You know that it’s not always easy to play two consecutive finals of the AFCON but I think that’s not the most important. What is important for us, I think all Senegalese know, which is to win the trophy no matter which team we are going to play we don’t have any choice,” Mane said.
With this, he acknowledges that their conquest was well deserved. Their knowledge of the fact that it was going to be a tough game as their opponent was indeed a team to fear for considering how they attacked and hindered some shots.
“Personally I tried to give my best we had infront of us a very good Burkina Faso side who caused us many problems. We knew it was going to be a difficult game and that was the case but we stayed calm and we were very matured in our playing style. And I think we merrited the victory this evening.”
Mane was designated Man of the match, as his goal one and assist helped secured the win for the Teranga lions.
Senegal will on Sunday 6 February 2021 log horns with either Cameroon or Egypt to complete for the AFCON trophy, as they look forward to correcting the errors of the 2019 final.
