Getting Ready for Egypt vs Senegal: AFCON Celebrations Over the Years

Within the world of international football, the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is one of the least celebrated and most overlooked events. But continentally, it has been a source of joy and celebration for decades.

As Egypt prepares for the 2022 AFCON Final, and potentially for breaking its own 7-title record, we remember past moments of celebration in AFCON finals over the past two decades.
