Mo Salah has once again been defeated by his team-mate in an important match. Previously Salah lost in the Africa Cup of Nations finals. He was left in tears due to the heavy loss. In today's match Egypt has lost again through penalties.
It seems this failure in the finals haunted them again since they lost the same way they did in the last match. The ninety minutes of the match ended 1-0 in favor of Senegal. Egypt had won in the previous match so the aggregate became 1-1 . They were therefore forced to for penalties.
In the first 90 minutes Senegal made a total of 25 shots where only one resulted into a goal while Egypt only had 5 shots. Looking at the stats Senegal had more striking power than the Pharaohs. This also shows that Mane's team had higher odds of winning.
Senegal also dominated the math with a ball possession of 59%. They made 432 passes with a pass accuracy of 73% while Egypt managed to cross 312 with a pass accuracy of 61%. Senegal are now through to Qatar for the World Cup.
