Senegal, who are yet to win any Cup of Nations title despite playing the most number of matches at the flagship African tourney can now dare dream as their tactician Aliou Cisse makes history playing in two finals as a player (2002) and now as a coach.

“I am proud to be living this moment, I played in the final in 2002 as a player and now I am here as a coach. I feel honored to achieve this history with this amazing team because we have not qualified for 17 years. This was a great match and I think it will be put in the history of football.” said Aliou Cisse – Senegal coach

Senegal should have been up by at least two goals by half time. The Lions of Teranga had literally the lion’s share of possession and chances in the opening 45 with one of the three tournament top scorers Sadio Mane having the best of the evening.

 Alaine Giresse: Tunisia coach:

This was a tough game and would have gone either way. I want to congratulate Senegal and Cisse because of what they have achieved. For us we will fight another day. This is the beauty of football.
