It is another continental title for Senegal as they defeated hosts Algeria on penalty shootout, to emerge champions of this year’s Africa Nations Championship (CHAN).
It is Senegal’s first-ever CHAN title and have now added it to the AFCON title they won in 2022 in Cameroon.
Recall the Senegalese A team overcame Egypt on penalties also to be crowned AFCON champions for the first time.
After both teams failed to find the back of the net following a pulsating 120 minutes of football, Senegal then went on to win 5-4 on penalties.
While the Teranga Lions converted all their spot kicks, Algeria saw one of their attempt saved by the opposition keeper.
In the third-place match played on Friday, a 90th minute goal by Madagascar saw them pip Benin Republic 1-0.
