Sadio Mane’s Senegal face Benin, who shocked Morocco in the Round of 16, while Nigeria take on South Africa who similarly shocked the world as they dumped hosts Egypt out of the competition. Mane has scored three goals so far and along with Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo, Algeria’s Adam Ounas and DR Congo’s Cedric Bakambu they lead the tournament in goals.

If Senegal prevail they will face the winner of Madagascar and Tunisia in Cairo on Sunday, while if Nigeria take care of business they will play either the Ivory Coast or Algeria in a stacked side of the bracket.
