Senegal reached the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals after a goal by Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye ended Benin’s tournament.

Gueye started and finished a move which saw Liverpool’s Sadio Mane tee up his team mate to score in Cairo.


The Video Assistant Referee system has been introduced from the quarter final stage and Mane had two goals disallowed for offside after VAR checks.


Benin’s Olivier Verdon was sent off towards the end for a foul on Gueye.
