The water bottle belonging to Egypt goalkeeper, Gabaski, listing Senegal players’ penalty-taking preferences on it – has been found after the final of the African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The final between the Teranga Lions of Senegal and the Pharaohs of Egypt was decided by a penalty shoot-out, which the former won.
With his notes, pasted to the bottle, which he studied intently before each penalty, Gabaski went the right way all but once and saving Sadio Mane’s spot-kick in normal time. Unfortunately, his efforts failed to yield the trophy to Egypt.
He used this bottle against Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Senegal and caught numerous penalties in all these matches.
Can this be cheating of the highest order ?
could this be the reason why Egypt was taking very knockout game to Penalties because they knew Gabaski had his water bottle to save them?
