Uganda will play their first Africa Cup of Nations knockout stage match since 1978, but in that match they have drawn an opponent who were, as The Inquisitr reported, among the tournament favorites, the Senegal Lions of Teranga. Coached by African football legend Aliou Cisse and led on attack by Liverpool striker Sadio Mane — who is looking to add the AFCON title to the UEFA Champions League trophy he won with Liverpool just five weeks ago — Les Lions de la Téranga saw their best AFCON performance in 2002 when they lost to Cameroon on penalty kicks in the final. Historically, they have struggled in knockout matches. They will look to rectify that problem in the match that will live stream from Cairo.

Senegal have lost nine of 14 AFCON knockout phase games, according to BeIn Sports, and have not won an elimination match since 2006. As a result, Cisse says that his team is not taking the underdog Cranes for granted.
“This is a team who are progressing” Cisse said, praising his opponents, as quoted by Goal.com. “They kept their identity African, they play like true Africans, you have to respect this.”
