We're down to two remaining teams in the African Cup of Nations.

Pre-tournament favourites Senegal and Egypt will butt heads on Sunday in search for continental glory. It has been billed as the battle of Liverpool team-mates Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, but both squads are full of real talent and capable of making this game one to remember.

Here's how to keep up with the action.


How to watch Senegal vs Egypt on TV/live stream

When is kick off? Sunday 6 February, 19:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Stade d'Olembe
TV channel/live stream? Sky Sports/BBC iPlayer (UK), beIN Sports/Fanatiz (US)

Senegal booked their place in Sunday's final first, seeing off Burkina Faso in the semi-final to make it through to their second consecutive showpiece.

Manager Aliou Cisse became just the third African manager ever to make it to back-to-back AFCON finals, and he'll hope to go one step further this year.

To do so, he'll have to lead his team to glory against Egypt, who made it to the final courtesy of a penalty shoot-out victory over hosts Cameroon.
