In the summary of the Café des sports at 4:10 p.m. UT on Facebook Live: Cameroon out of its CAN.

Solid and resilient Pharaohs qualified after the penalty shootout, at the end of a closed match.

- Autopsy of a sports failure.

What did the Indomitable Lions miss?

- A trompe-l'oeil route to the semi-finals?

- The sporting consequences: it will be necessary to remobilize for a small final against the Stallions, and to face Algeria in the qualifiers counting for the World Cup. 


- The consequences for the country: a drama, controversy, a few hiccups.

- Senegal/Egypt, different trajectories, but a revival of 2 nations, for an unprecedented final as the culmination of the Pan-African tournament.

- Mané and Salah, two "Scousers", 2 kings of England for a single throne!

- A final with a stylish opposition, wait-and-see Egyptians against Senegalese on the attack?

- If Egypt is on a mission to win an 8th star, will the Lions of Teranga defeat the Indian sign?

- Cardboard sequence at the end of the issue.
