Sadio Mane sends message to Mohamed Salah after Senegal beat Egypt to World Cup
Liverpool star forward Sadio Mane strongly believes Senegal had much luck on their side as they broke Egyptian hearts for the second time this year to qualify for the 2022 World Cup which is set to take place in Qatar.
Senegal levelled the one-goal deficit in the fourth minute in front at hom and then depended on penalties to beat Egypt again.
Egypt’s wayward penalties helped Senegal come out on top.
Sadio Mane converted the deciding penalty while Mohamed Salah missed a spot kick.
Mohamed Salah was consoled after the loss with Senegal.
This was the second time Egypt faced defeat at the hands of Senegal as the Lions of Teranga beat them in the AFCON final in February this year.
Mane explained that Senegal had luck on their side as they broke Egypt’s heart twice in the span of months.
The Senegalese told ONTime Sports, as per KingFut:
“I won twice and he [Salah] lost twice, I was luckier to come out on top.
“I am very proud that we won the Africa Cup of Nations and now qualified for the World Cup, it’s a dream I had.”
He added that the Senegalese fans helped push the team over the line:
“I believe it was a difficult game for both teams. Our fans pushed us to win and we didn’t stop fighting.
“We knew the game wouldn’t be easy, but we pressed to score.”
