Mohamed Salah and his teammates defeated Cameroon in the semifinal, while Senegal defeated Burkina Faso to set up what will be an interesting AFCON final.

Unavailability of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane since January forced Jurgen Klopp and his chiefs at Anfield to sign Luis Diaz from Porto.

According to the report on Sky Sports and Mirror, Jurgen Klopp explained that he likes everything about Luis Diaz and that Liverpool chiefs are still interested in Fabio Carvalho.

What is Liverpool's position on the Premier League table?

Sadio Mane reveals Man behind Senegal's motivation to win AFCON

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Sadio Mane says his Senegal teammates are determined to ease the pressure on their manager Aliou Cisse by winning the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Teranga Lions are in the final and will be looking to make amends from their disappointment in 2019 when they went all the way only to lose to Algeria in the final.

Senegal has been among the favourites to win the tournament before it even began, and they have lived up to expectations, thus far.

They began their campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Zimbabwe followed by successive 0-0 draws against Guinea and Malawi in Group B which were enough to take them to the last 16.
