The Senegal vs Egypt live stream will bring to a close the Africa Cup of Nations 2021. The winning team will lift the golden trophy and go down in the history books as legends. AFCON has always been a fairly open tournament, renowned for upsets, so this final really is anybody's game.

For the neutral, the Senegal vs Egypt live stream is a tantalizing fixture because it's also a showdown between two of the Premier League’s biggest stars. Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah are usually teammates for Liverpool, but for 90 minutes they will be fierce rivals. Both will be desperate to bring the trophy home for their nation and solidify their status as legends on the international stage. 

Senegal have definitely had the more convincing run to the final. The West African side topped their group with two draws and a win and then cruised through the knockout stages, beating Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea and Burkina Faso. Senegal have scored nine goals and conceded just twice across the entire tournament. The side on paper looks the favorite. 

Meanwhile, Egypt have certainly rode their luck on the way to the final. The side lost to Nigeria in their opening group stage match but then bounced back with victories against Guinea-Bissau and Sudan. They ultimately finished as runner ups in the group to Nigeria, who were knocked out by Tunisia in the Round of 16.

The knockout stages have seen Egypt twice progress via penalties, in the Round of 16 against Ivory Coast and in the Semi-final against Cameron. Plus, Egypt required extra time to beat Morocco in the Quater-final. Such a hard-earned path to the final does show the immense spirit and drive within this Egyptian side, and they will come into this final ready to go the distance. 

Here's how they line up:

Senegal: E Mendy, Ciss, Koulibaly, Diallo, B Sarr, Gueye, N Mendy, Kouyate, Mane, Diedhiou, I Sarr

Egypt: Gabaski, Ashour, Abdelmonem, Hamdi, El Fotouh, Elneny, El Soleya, Fathi, Salah, Mohamed, Marmoush
