Senegal became the last team to advance to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals following their win over Equatorial Guinea on Sunday night.
Sadio Mane was named Man of the Match after the Lions of Teranga defeated the National Thunder 3-1 and they joined Egypt, Burkina Faso and tournament hosts, Cameroon in the last four.
Senegal will now take on Burkina Faso in the first semi-final clash on Wednesday, while Egypt will lock horns with Cameroon the following day.
Many fans took to social media to react to Senegal's win over Equatorial Guinea and predicted the Lions of Teranga would face Mohamed Salah's Egypt in the final which will be played on February 6.
Salah captained the Pharaohs as they claimed a 2-1 win over Morocco on Sunday evening and some fans would love to see the world-class attacker face his Liverpool teammate Mane in the final.
Read how Twitter reacted to Senegal's win over Equatorial Guinea:
Mane and Salah are through to the semi finals both guys doing It for their various nations. Am seeing a Senegal vs Egypt final

Sadio Mane's Senegal goes through to the semi finals and faces Burkina Faso. We have a potential Mohamed Salah vs Saido Mane AFCON final but the best part it will go well with all Liverpool fans in the world whoever wins. #AFCON2021 #TeamSenegal

We could be destined for a Senegal V Egypt AFCON final and what an exceptional match that would be. There's so much more to it than Salah v Mane; two nations desperate to legitimise themselves. I suspect Senegal's 2019 loss will power them to victory.

Hope it's an Egypt vs Senegal final now. Salah or Mane won't feel much physical fatigue if they win it. The adrenaline will mean they'll still be on a high and they'll just play through it.
