  • Algeria have already beaten Senegal 1-0 in the group stage at this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations- Youcef Belaili scoring the winning goal

Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has said that Senegal is the favorite team to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final set to be played on Friday.

It will be the second time they have met in the current tournament with Algeria outmuscling Senegal to win 1-0 in the group stage.

Liverpool standout Mane, however, is attempting to fulfil his "wildest dream" as one of just a handful of Africans to win both the UEFA Champions League and Cup of Nations.

The 27-year-old nearly seemed to be trying too hard, taking on opposing defences single-handedly as his team mates ran out of ideas.

Senegal will battle Algeria in Cairo tomorrow to determine the new champions of Africa. "We'll also be playing for him tomorrow", said Cisse.

Mahrez has responded with three goals, two of them gems.

Nigeria's Odion Ighalo boosted his chances of winning the Golden Boot at the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday after he netted Nigeria's victor; his fifth of the tournament, to ensure his side's finished in third place, with a 1-0 victory over Tunisia.

Senegal were the better side over the 90 minutes and ended the match as decent value for their victory. The tournament has been played under intensely heavy security.

Senegal, of course, have fearsome attackers such as Sadio Mane, Ismaila Sarr and Keita Balde to call upon, but the Lions of Teranga have already fallen to Algeria once in Egpyt: their 1-0 group stage defeat in Cairo. Senegal held their nerve and reached the final thanks to an own goal from Tunisian defender Dylan Bronn.

Algerian star Mahrez was part of the Manchester City team that edged out Mane's Liverpool for the English title last season, grabbing a pivotal goal on the final day of the campaign.

After a turbulent period which saw Algeria employ seven coaches in three years, it has taken Djamel Belmadi less than one year to restore order and turn a dispirited squad into finalists at the Africa Cup of Nations.
