If you were worried that Liverpool FC’s Sadio Mane would have some kind of penalty hangover after getting his shot saved by international teammate Edouard Mendy, fear no more. Mane scored a 98th-minute game-winning penalty against Rwanda. Watch.
Last minute winner for Sadio. pic.twitter.com/laA7JJjAsF— The Anfield Talk (@TheAnfieldTalk) June 7, 2022
This makes it two out of two for Senegal in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying, following a 3-1 win against Benin. Mane also scored a hat-trick in that game, which took him past Henri Camara to become Senegal’s all-time top scorer. (Mane has 32 now, Camara had 29.)
Elsewhere, Brazil travelled to Tokyo to take on Japan in a friendly game. Alisson and Takumi Minamino started the game, while Fabinho was a late sub for Casemiro at the 85-minute mark. The game was decided by a lone goal with PSG’s Neymar scoring the winning penalty. It was won by Richarlison (I haven’t seen it but I assume it was a dive) after he was fouled inside the box at the 75th-minute mark of the game.
