Senegal beat Sudan, seal 2019 AFCON qualification
The Lions of Teranga have become the second team to qualify from Group A after Madagascar, who reached the finals for the first team in their history.
Senegal entered the game in second place with seven points, four ahead of third-place Equatorial Guinea, and seven ahead of bottom-placed Sudan.
They had to pick up a win in Sudan to secure their qualification and they got what they wanted, thanks to a late winner from Lorient’s midfielder Sidi Sarr.
The win moved Senegal to 10 points in Group A alongside Madagascar, seven more than third-placed Equatorial Guinea, with only two matches left to play.
Aliou Cissé’s men join Madagascar, Egypt, Tunisia, and hosts Cameroon in qualifying for the finals next June.
This marks the 15th participation for Senegal in the AFCON tournaments, however, they have never managed to win the title before, with their best result coming in 2002 when they lost the final to Cameroon.
