What fans are praying for should Mane win AFCON trophy

Sadio Mane is the man on target after Senegal made it through to the final of the ongoing African Cup of Nation tournament. Senegal beat Tunisia 1-0 in a grueling match that ended in the extra-time.

A horrendous mistake by goalkeeper Moez Hassen in the 100th minute saw the ball bounce off the head of defender Dylan Bronn and into the net for the only goal of a game in which both teams had second-half penalties saved.

Now that Senegal will meet Algeria, the focus is on the 2018-19 Premier League Golden Boot winner Sadio Mane who will be keen to help his national team lift the AFCON trophy for the first time since its inception in 1957.

Until now, the winner of 2018-19 Ballon d’Or winner has not been announced. The race has been tight as the five-time winners Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi weren’t at their best in last season’s Champions League.

And fans have now begun a campaign to have Sadio Mane given the award if Senegal wins the AFCON title. Mane has had his best moment this year both for Liverpool and Senegal.

Sadio Mane just finished as joint top scorer in the English Premier League, won the Uefa Champions League and has now directly contributed to 50% (so far) of Senegal’s goals to reach their first AFCON final since 2002.

Here are fans reactions ahead of Senegal’s AFCON final with Algeria;
