Senegal, first classified for the CAN with a goal by Mane

The Senegal team has become the first to qualify for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) thanks to its 0-1 victory over Guinea-Bissau with a goal from Liverpool player Sadio Mané.

The Senegalese team leads qualifying group I with four victories, thus securing one of the first two places that will qualify for the tournament to be played in Cameroon between January 9 and February 6, 2022.

Mané scored the winning goal for the team led by Aliou Cissé in the 82nd minute against an inferior rival since the 64th minute due to a double warning from Bura.

The Senegalese team featured, among others, Edouard Mendy, Chelsea goalkeeper, and Pape Diop, Eibar midfielder, and the Guinean Marcelo Djalo, from Lugo.
