Sadio Mane was named player of the tournament after inspiring Senegal to Africa Cup of Nations glory. After a goalless 120-minute final on Sunday, the Liverpool forward scored the game-winning penalty kick to give his country a 4-2 shootout triumph over Egypt’s Mohamed Salah.
Mane was outstanding throughout the competition in Cameroon, scoring three goals and providing two assists to help Senegal become AFCON champions for the first time. He also made history by being the first Senegalese player to win the Champions League.
He had a penalty stopped early in the final, but he held his nerve to score the game-winning penalty and was named the tournament’s best player.
