Sadio Mane says it is his “absolute dream” to help Senegal win the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time.
“For me, the most important thing is to win it with Senegal,” said Mane.
Mana who scored a brace in their last match to seal the team’s tick for the second round has promised to give his all to the team. He is ready to inspire the team by scoring more goals.
“I will try to score more goals and help my team-mates score so that we can finally win this cup,” added Mane, who could play against Liverpool team-mate Salah if Senegal and Egypt reach the final on 19 July.
“This is my absolute dream [to help Senegal win]. I am here for this.”
It is said that the Teranga Lions of Senegal stayed away from training on Tuesday. Nevertheless, Mane has warned his side not to underestimate their opponents. He wants his teammate to stay focused and not count Uganda as an underdog so they don’t suffer an upset.
“We saw the kind of football they played against Egypt and they are a very good side. We must be at our best against Uganda,” he said.
