Sadio Mane roasted Brazil's defence multiple times during 1-1 draw


Sadio Mane is having another superb season at Liverpool.

In eight Premier League appearances the Senegalese has scored five goals, with his most recent coming during the 2-1 victory over Leicester City.

Mane did what he does best by running in behind Leicester's defence, latching onto a pass and beating the goalkeeper one-on-one to break the deadlock.

There are few better finishers than Mane in the Premier League - maybe even in Europe - and there's an argument to be made that he's more important to Liverpool than Mohamed Salah.

He was in action for Senegal against Brazil on Thursday and even though he didn't get on the scoresheet, he played an important role in the 1-1 draw.

In the 44th minute, Mane raced past Dani Alves and then Marquinhos into the box before being brought down by the Paris Saint-Germain defender to win a penalty.

One imagines he wanted to take it, but Famara Diedhiou stepped up instead and duly beat Ederson to level the scores.

Mane terrorised Brazil's defence all game and in the end they found out the only way to stop him was by hacking him down.


In the 58th minute, the 27-year-old produced another fantastic run where he skinned four of Brazil's players down the wing only to be fouled, this time by Alves.

Check out both of Mane's runs in the videos below.


Liverpool fans will only hope Mane's hot form continues when they travel to face Manchester United on October 20.

United are there for the taking given their recent struggles, but Liverpool will still need to be at their best at Old Trafford to maintain their 100% start to the season.
