Senegal won a penalty just five minutes into the game after an Egypt defender faulted but Sadio missed it. Gabaski rose to the occasion and quickly grabbed it.
It was a very heated match but Senegal had the upper hand throughout 90 minutes of play. Both sides couldn’t score a goal. A penalty was played after extra time which gave Senegal a win. Both keepers of the sides, Gabaski and Mendy catched one each but one Egyptian player missed, making it a 4-2 shootout.
Though he couldn’t score that penalty from the beginning of the match, he didn’t let this opportunity pass by. He wanted to redeem himself, which he perfectly did. Once again, he showed up when Senegal needed him the most.
