The inconsolable Moussa Niakhaté was the only player who missed a spot kick leading his team out of the tournament at a 4-5 penalty loss.

Senegal follows Egypt which was on Sunday knocked out by DR Congo in a penalty shoot-out 7-8 after a one goal draw.

The curse continues. Since Egypt in 2010, no defending Afcon champion has qualified to the quarter-finals.

Massive celebrations from almost everyone in the stadium! Kessié runs straight to the fans. The bench goes absolutely crazy. Wow!

This team was down and out only a few days ago! This is Emerse Faé’s first ever match in charge as a senior manager. What a performance! The hosts march on in incredible fashion. The Elephants trumpet on!

For the quarter-final, Ivory Coast is waiting for the winner between Mali vs Bukina Faso.
