Mane’s Goal Helps Senegal Become First Country To Qualify For AFCON

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane scored the winner for Senegal against Guinea-Bissau to book their place at the Africa Cup of Nations finals.

 

Mane scored in the 82nd minute after Jorge Nogueira was sent off in the second half for Guinea-Bissau.

 

Senegal, currently the top-ranked country in Africa, are the first team to qualify apart from hosts Cameroon.

 

They have picked up a maximum 12 points from four matches in Group I and qualify with two games to spare.

 

Mane also scored a penalty in Senegal’s 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau in Thies on Wednesday.

 

The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations has been postponed to January 2022 by the Confederation of African Football as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
