Sadio Mane opened the scoring as Senegal beat Togo 2-0 in the homeland and earned three points. He earned the points in their opening Group H against Africa’s second round of World Cup qualifying which began on 1 September.
Mane played a neat one-two after blazing over the bar in the first half. Mane earned before poking home just before the end of the second half as the Liverpool star took full advantage of his full potential to represent his nation. He was not bothered about the threat of having to quarantine for 10 days after he returned to England. Throughout the game, Mane was lively in a game wrapped up when Abdou Diallo lashed home nine minutes before the end of the second half.
The victory is seen as revenge by the Senegalese as they could not beat Togo as the Sparrowhawks pipped them in the World Cup 2006 where they played against each other. On Tuesday, Senegal will travel to Congo and Togo will seek their first points at home to Namibia in the Sunday game. Meanwhile, the game ended 1-1 as the neighbors Guinea-Bissau and Guinea met in the World Cup qualifier. They will compete for the first time in 25 years.
