CDM 2022/ Sadio Mané’s message to Mohamed Salah, “I won twice and he…”

After its coronation at CAN 2021 against Egypt, Senegal has just qualified for the 2022 World Cup, once again beating the Pharaohs of Egypt. Faced with this victory which seems to be repeated in the history of Senegalese football, Sadio Mané said he recalled a strong message to Mohamed Salah.

Sadio Mané and his teammates have once again come out on top against Mohamed Salah’s Egypt. After the story of CAN 2021 which took place in Cameroon, the Pharaohs of Egypt have just lost a great victory, the ticket for the 2022 World Cup.

After the first leg match of the World Cup play-offs where Egypt led 1-0, the Teranga Lions took their revenge in the second leg with a score of 1-0. The penalty shootout won by Senegal (3-1) allowed Aliou Cissé’s foals to validate their ticket to Qatar.
