AFCON: Mane assists, Sarr scores as Senegal topple Equatorial Guinea

Senegal overcame Equatorial Guinea to set up an Africa Cup of Nations semi-final against Burkina Faso.

The Lions of Teranga claimed a 3-1 victory as they inch closer to potentially their first tournament triumph.

Famara Diedhiou put Senegal ahead with a first-time strike following an assist from Sadio Mane.

Jannick Buyla equalised from the penalty spot for Equatorial Guinea.

But Senegal roared back into the game substitute Cheikhou Kouyate before Watford star Ismaila Sarr side-footed in the third goal.
