Africa Cup of Nations favourites Senegal face Benin in the quarter-finals of the tournament as they bid to reach the final four for the first time since 2002.

Senegal finished runners-up that year after losing out to Cameroon on penalties following a goalless draw.

Aliou Cisse who missed the deciding penalty in the shootout, now manages the national team and in captain Sadio Mane he has the tournament’s joint top scorer.

Benin will be the overwhelming underdogs having failed to qualify for the previous four editions of the tournament.


‘The Squirrels’ have made history in Egypt after reaching the knockout stage for the first time.
