Liverpool star to light up clash with Napoli defender in Africa

Posted by

Liverpool showed how much they were missing Sadio Mane as they slumped to a 3-2 loss against Swansea yesterday, and today they can only watch as their dynamic forward looks to do the damage against a talented Algeria side in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Mane faces off against a side with well known players like Riyahd Mahrez in the mix, but so far one that has failed to fire in this tournament, scrabbling back one draw against Zimbabwe and then losing to Tunisia 21.

Even better for Senegal is that their forward flair in the shape of Mane will be supported by the presence of Everton’s powerful midfielder Idrissa “Gana” Gueye, and former Chelsea target Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly at the back.

It promises to be an exciting game for anyone looking to spice up their weekend diet of football with something a little more interesting than the standard Premier League fare.
