Sadio Mane only needed 15 minutes in yesterday’s international friendly match to turn the game on its head.
Liverpool winger Mane came off the bench in the 75th minute with Senegal trailing 1-0 in a home friendly match against Mali.
And he scored the equaliser in the 87th minute before setting up Pape Moussa Konate for the winner in stoppage time.
Liverpool fans were not surprised to hear that Mane had been influential on the outcome of the game. He has proven his worth time and time again this season.
With 20 goals to his name this season, the 26-year-old is developing into one of Liverpool’s star performers.
And given Mo Salah’s recent dip in form, Mane emerging as the goal scorer for Liverpool has been necessary for the Reds to maintain their promotion push.
Mane’s goal yesterday was typical of his style of play. Picking the ball up from deep, he demonstrated skill and pace to glide into the box before providing the finish touch.
Here are several tweets from Liverpool fans who were discussing Mane’s match-winning international cameo.
Mane on a Mission!!
