This weekend will be Liverpool’s first “trophy” when Mo Salah’s Egypt takes on Sadio Mane’s Senegal in the Africa Cup Of Nations final.

It wasn’t easy sailing for the Pharaohs as they needed extra time to secure their berth into the finals of the African continent showpiece with the game still locked at 0-0 after 120 minutes. Salah and his team held their nerve to secure a 3-1 win on penalties and remain on course in their chase for a record-extending eighth African crown.

Sadio Mane’s Senegal was a stark contrast as they needed normal time to beat Burkina Faso and continue their search for their first title.
The question however remains. Who will go back to Anfield as a champion? Whatever the outcome, “You never walk alone”.
