Abdou Diallo opens goal account as Mane inspires Senegal to victory over Togo

Second-half goals in Thies helped the Teranga Lions begin their quest for a place in next year's showpiece with a comfortable home win

Liverpool talisman Sadio Mane opened the scoring and Paris Saint-Germain defender Abdou Diallo scored his first goal for Senegal in their 2-0 triumph over Togo on Wednesday.

It was Senegal’s first victory in their maiden qualifying match for the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar on home soil.

Wednesday's triumph also served as a revenge for the Teranga Lions who punished Sparrowhawks for stopping them from making it to the 2006 World Cup in Germany, after they pipped them to the qualifiers top spot.
