Sadio Mane scored the winning penalty in a shootout to send Senegal to the 2022 World Cup after Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah missed his spot-kick for Egypt.

In a tie that was locked at 1-1 on aggregate after extra time Senegal's Boulaye Dia was the scorer of the only goal in normal time

Mane had netted the penalty which won the Nations Cup and the Reds forward notched the decisive spot-kick once again as Egypt captain Salah was one of four players to miss the first four penalties of a shootout marked by a vast number of green laser pointers directed at the visiting players and goalkeeper.

Elsewhere in Africa's World Cup play-offs, Ghana, Tunisia, Morocco and Cameroon also clinched qualification - with Nigeria, Mali, DR Congo and Algeria all eliminated.
