After winning the Champions League with Liverpool, Sadio Mane has the opportunity to win his first African Cup with Senegal on Friday against Algeria. A title that can put the balance in its favor for the next Ballon d 'Or.
He will become the second African in history to win the highest prize awarded to a footballer after George Way in 1995. It is worthy if it becomes a reality.
It has to be said that this season, Ten Lergo Terranga and Liverpool are particularly sparkling. Second in the Premier League with the Reds, Sado Mane finished the best top scorer in the championship (tied to Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emeric Obamayang) with 22 goals. It is logical for him to be part of the typical team of the year. Better yet, 1v In June against Tottenham (2: 0) he won the prestigious Champions League with the Mersey Club.
SOME COMPETITORS, INCLUDING COMPETITORS
So, from the beginning of CAN 2019, the former Metz player, formed in the famous Foot Generation, a few kilometers from Dakar, is certainly not sparkling but sacrificed for the benefit of the team. And if he has already missed two penalties (preferring to stop shooting elsewhere), he even scored three goals (the second best scorer of the race). So, on the left hand side, it does not matter, as expected at every Teranga Lions meeting, but the Bambali-born village, who passed through Salzburg and Southampton, merged into a group well connected with Alia Cisse.
The dedication of Senegal to Algeria on Friday night could further enhance its status as a favorite to inherit Luke Modric, the champion. We recall that last season he was ranked 22nde, Disappointing result in the position of some less efficient players.

However, the race is great for top rank. If Lionel Messi is the winner, Cristiano Ronaldo (Serie A and League of Nations) can still claim a sixth title. But his competitors are also in his club. Also a favorite, Mohamed Salah has lost his place after the early elimination of Egypt in this CAN 2019 year. Then beautiful people. But before I think of all this, there is a title.
