Chelsea FC goalkeeper Edouard Mendy last night made a crucial penalty save to help his national team The Teranga Lions of Senegal win the Africa Cup of Nations against Egypt. The 2021 tournament was postponed to 2022 as a result of the Covid-19 restrictions.

Senegal won 4-2 on penalties after Liverpool winger Sadio Mane scored to secure victory, having missed a penalty himself earlier in the game before it ended 0-0 after extra-time in the finals at the Olembe Stadium.
