Sadio Mane’s form has been brought into question by some fans over the last year or so, but the Liverpool star has been on fire lately. Last Sunday, he scored the opening goals against Manchester City. Over the weekend, he netted for his country Senegal in their 4-1 victory over Namibia to put them on 9 points through three games in their quest for World Cup qualification. Not only did Sadio score, he also danced with fans after the match!
This was Mane’s 26th international goal for Senegal, one of which came in a match not recognized by FIFA. Senegal has never lost a game in which the winger has scored for them, winning 19 matches and drawing the other 6. You can see what this means to him as he goes over to the Senegal fans at the Stade Lat Dior.
Mane and Senegal have one more match during this international break. They play Namibia again on Tuesday before Mane returns back to Liverpool.
