Gana's Senegal Eliminated

Idrissa Gana Gueye’s Senegal have been eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations following a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat to Cameroon in the quarter-finals.

Gana, who featured in all three group games as Aliou Cisse’s side finished Group B winners, played the full 120 minutes - but neither side could break the deadlock in Franceville, meaning the tie headed to penalties.

The first eight spot-kicks were successful before Liverpool’s Sadio Mané saw his effort saved, allowing Besiktas’ Vincent Aboubakar to step up and fire Cameroon into the last four of the competition.

After missing games against Leicester City, Manchester City and Crystal Palace, Gana will now head back to Merseyside.
