Both Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mané, the two top players of the Egyptian and Senegalese teams respectively, are popular among Palestinian football fans. However, the final scenes of Egyptian players crying at the end of the match was a somber end of the exciting spectacle. 

The Palestine Chronicle would like to congratulate Senegal on winning the CAF title for the first time in its history while wishing Egypt great success in its world cup endeavors.
