Egypt's 44-Year-Old Goalie Has Them In The AFCON Final

Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary, who is 44 years old, stood on his head during regulation and saved Burkina Faso's final two penalties to put Egypt in the AFCON final.

Egypt and Burkina Faso met Wednesday with a trip to the Africa Cup of Nations on the line, and the match was ultimately decided by Egypt's 44-year-old goalkeeper, Essam El-Hadary.

El-Hadary made several fine saves in open play (which ended 1-1) before saving Burkina Faso's final two penalties to win the shootout.

Age ain't nothin' but a number.
