Senegalese striker Sadio Mane , who is only 30 years old, is writing a great story. Scorer of a hat-trick against Benin on Saturday, Sadio Mané started the AFCON 2023 qualifiers strong, breaking a record in the history of the West African country.

Mané is now the top scorer in the national team and dethrones the emblematic Henri Camara.

“I am very honored tonight to see my little brother, Sadio Mané, break my record for the most goals in the national team. It is a pride. I congratulate him and I wish him to continue to score and carry the colors of Senegal high. Well done champion,” said Henri Camara.

Sadio Mané therefore made history as the only top scorer for the Teranga Lions.

Thanks to his hat-trick, the Liverpool striker is now at 32 goals in selection, one more than Henri Camara.

In the mixed zone, the 30-year-old savored the victory. The former Southampton also returned to his statements where he mentioned his departure from Liverpool.

“It’s a pleasure to register this hat-trick honestly. I have always said that my job was to score goals and score. The important thing for us tonight was to win. We did it together. The team played well from start to finish. We created a lot of chances and defensively we were tough. Sadio Mané first said before adding.

“Stop! I talked about it yesterday laughing, with a touch of humor and it went around the world. Now we have to stop there. We’ll see what will happen. I am still under contract with Liverpool. It’s a club I respect. Fans have embraced me since day one. As for the future, we’ll see! »
