Abu Jabal appeared reviewing information and data written on a water bottle, before and during the penalty shootout stage, during the final match of the African Nations Cup on Sunday evening, between Egypt and Senegal.
It was evident through the meeting camera, that Abu Jabal uses the bottle to find out the preferred angle for each penalty shooter.
Abu Jabal has previously used the bottle against Cameroon and Côte d’Ivoire, and managed to lead his country to victory during the two meetings.
According to an African journalist at the tournament, Abu Jabal left the bottle on the ground after Egypt’s defeat from Senegal in the final, which prompted the journalist to film the bottle closely for the fans.
And the Abu Jabal water bottle appeared, bearing the names of the Senegal players, and their preferred angles for kicks, in a scientific way, which showed the percentage of the kicks in each corner of the goal.
When the journalist photographed the bottle closely, it became clear that it contained the names of most of the Senegal players, including top scorer Sadio Mane.
The bottle showed Mane’s preference to shoot to the right of the goalkeeper, which he did, which is the angle that Abu Jabal went to, but he failed to block the decisive kick for its strength and accuracy.
Abu Jabal succeeded, using his high skill and “bottle”, by blocking 5 penalty kicks in the tournament, one against Côte d’Ivoire, two against Cameroon, and two against Senegal, one during the original time and the other during the penalty shootout.
The Senegalese team crowned its first African title at the expense of Egypt on penalties, after the Egyptian players missed two kicks, while Bono Sarr only missed Senegal.
