Mane Encourages Senegal's Lions To Be Proud Of Their Performance

Sadio Mane expects Senegal’s Lions of Teranga to demonstrate their sharp claws even without him in Monday’s World Cup opener against the Netherlands..

Mane, a Bayern Munich forward, was set to spearhead the team’s quest in Qatar, but a cruel leg injury has ruled him out.

On paper, his absence appears to have significantly weakened the team, but Mane believes the reality may be quite different, and he expects the group he left to rise to the occasion.

“This Monday, our dear country will compete in the World Cup, Qatar 2022,” the former Liverpool star wrote on Instagram. I am confident that the Lions will transcend and treat each game as if it were the championship game..

“I am also convinced that the entire Senegalese population will gather in front of the small screen to cheer on and encourage our valiant national team.”

“Like all supporters of the ‘Taniere’ [lions’ den], I am confident that my teammates will fight as one man, as they always do, to honor our beloved Senegal.” Long live Senegal, and bring on the Lions.”

Senegal were unexpected quarter-finalists in 2002, and as the reigning Africa Cup of Nations champions, they were widely regarded as the continent’s best hope for World Cup success this time around.

Many observers’ perceptions will be altered by the loss of Mane.

After being ruled out of Senegal’s squad, the 30-year-old had a tendon reattached to the head of his right fibula, and he could be out for several months..

Mane thanked his supporters, writing: “Following my injury, many of you have sent messages of encouragement. Thank God, my surgery in the middle of the week went smoothly. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank and express my gratitude to everyone.”
