The goal came on the back of Brazil's numerous efforts in search of goals in the first ten minutes of the encounter.

However, despite conceding early enough, Senegal were composed enough to stage counter attacking moves against the south American side.

With Sadio Mane leading the attack, Teranga Lions pressured their opponents but the experience of Thiago Silva at the center of the defence protected Ederson Moraes from conceding earlier.

Meanwhile, Brazil could not hold on to their lead beyond the first half as Aliou Cisse's men found the back of the net in the extra minutes of first half.

Famara Diedhiou scored the equaliser for the AFCON 2019 silver winning team through a penalty kick a little after 45 minutes.

Liverpool star Sadio Mane won the spot kick after making a solo run into Brazil's danger zone before being hacked down by Marquinhos and Silva.

Both sides produced flashes of brilliance in the second half but neither could bury their chances they created.
