The aftermath of the twelve days of group stages in the AFCON 2019, the lead to African Cup of Nations, AFCON, glory resumes today in the land of the pyramids, Egypt between Algeria and Senegal.

Aliou Cisse’s charges have used a lone goal victory in all three matches in the knockout rounds, beating Uganda, Benin and Tunisia in the round-of-16, quarter and semi-finals respectively.

The final hurdle is July 19 match up against Algeria. The Senegalese will be looking to avoid a second defeat at the hand of the Algerians.

At close of the day, it would be a case of repeat or revenge but the two managers who are linked by their upbringing will prove positively.
