AFCON: Liverpool forward Mane steers Senegal into final with win over Burkina Faso

Senegal are into the African Cup of Nations final after claiming a 3-1 win over Burkina Faso in the semi-final on Wednesday.

Abdou Diallo and Idrissa Gueye put Senegal in charge before Blati Toure reduced the deficit late on.

But Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane sealed the victory with an 87th minute strike.

Senegal are yet to win an AFCON title, having lost in the final last time against Algeria.

They will face Egypt or hosts Cameroon in Sunday's final.
