Liverpool striker Sadio Mane becomes leading scorer in Senegal history

 


Liverpool striker Sadio Mane became the leading scorer in Senegal history with a hat-trick for his national side on Saturday night.

The Liverpool forward netted all the goals for Aliou Cisse's team as they beat Benin 3-1 in their opening match of qualifying for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Having fired in a penalty on 12 minutes, Mane struck again soon after by following up his own saved shot to dispatch the rebound and then scored from the spot a second time on the hour mark.

The treble in Diamniadio took Mane up to 32 goals for Senegal, moving him clear of Henri Camara as the country's most prolific player of all time.
