Cairo: After a Champions League title with Liverpool, Sadio Mane is out to conquer a second continent in as many months as Senegal attempt to capture a first Africa Cup of Nations title against Algeria in Friday’s final in Cairo. A calf injury ruined Mane’s 2015 Cup of Nations, while his missed penalty knocked the team out in a quarter-final shootout
Sadio Mane’s Senegal and an Algeria side captained by Riyad Mahrez will attempt to secure their place in Africa Cup of Nations history in Friday’s final in Cairo.
Africa Cup of Nations champions Algeria arrived home on Saturday to a hero's welcome from a huge crowd of joyful supporters and a "water salute" for their plane at Algiers airport.
Bounedjah gave Algeria a dream start in the second minute when his deflected shot looped over Senegal goalkeeper Alfred Gomis, and it proved enough for the 1990 champions to lift the trophy on foreign soil for the first time.
Hussain Jasim Al Nowais, Chairman, Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development, KFED, has laid the foundation stone for what will soon become the Mohamed bin Zayed Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The new facility will be located in the Senegalese capital, Dakar, with the aim to promote innovation and entrepreneurship among local businesses, particularly small and medium enterprises, SMEs.
