Both East African nations lost their last Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) group games on Monday night
Senegal beat Kenya 3-0, and Algeria beat Tanzania 3-0 in Afcon action as two of Africa’s favourites turned on the style.
First we take a look at how the continent’s football fans celebrated the performance of one of their most famous players, Sadio Mane at 30 June Stadium.
The Liverpool star got social media buzzing early for the wrong reasons after his penalty was saved by Kenya’s Patrick Matasi in the first half.
Then in the second half his pace was just too much for Kenya’s players in a counter attack. Mane used his physical power to win the ball and then outran Harambee Stars backline.
Late on he got another opportunity from the spot to make amends for the earlier miss. Mane struck his shot to the right this time as it crept low into the goal past Matasi.
Algeria were just too good for Tanzania at Al-Salam Stadium. In this game Adam Ounas impressed fans after scoring a brace of his own.
Islam Slimani had earlier opened the scoring for Algeria who topped the group ahead of second placed Senegal.

I know someone who went all the way to Egypt to watch Tanzania v Algeria on the TV

Algeria 3 Tanzania 0. Algeria vastly superior but still found it necessary to commit 23 fouls. They top the group with nine points and no goals concended — just like their bitter rivals Egypt.

Remember Algeria scored two goals, Senegal had three and Tanzania two. We’ve a deplorable defense. #KENSEN

Against Algeria we were absolutely horrible, against Tanzania we toiled, against Senegal, we’ve played a far much superior game… save for the 3 unforced errors. But that’s football. Good game and no goals is naught
