Senegal reached their second successive AFCON final with a 3-1 win over Burkina Faso on Wednesday, but the pre-tournament favourites have taken a while to warm up. They only scored one goal in the group stages, a 97th-minute penalty against Zimbabwe, but will fancy their chances against an opponent that has also struggled to find the net. Watford's Ismaïla Sarr is rewarded for his impact in the previous two games with a start tonight, but all eyes will still be on Sadio Mané. Famara Diédhiou continues as the main striker.  

Mohamed Abou Gabal retains his place in goal for Egypt, with the usual front three of Omar Marmoush, Mostafa Mohamed and Mo Salah. Aston Villa's Trézéguet has to settle for a place on the bench again. The Pharaohs have needed more than 90 mins to win all three of their knockout matches at this year's tournament, with extra time and penalties required to eliminate hosts Cameroon in the semi-final. Will the extra exertion, plus a day less to recover than Senegal, finally catch up with Salah and co?

Watch Senegal vs Egypt from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant AFCON 2022 rights holders, you won't be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. It creates a private connection between your device and the internet, and saves you money! What's not to love?

How to use a VPN

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.
