Tunisia Lose to Senegal, With Mane On The Scoresheet

Senegal are one of the favourites to win the tournament and they proved they were worthy of that tag, with a strong showing against Tunisia, earning them a 2-0 win.

Senegal are hoping to reach the knockout stage of the competition for the first time in 11 years and Mane’s opener from the spot, just after ten minutes made a statement.

And twenty minutes after that, a well taken corner was headed in by Kara Mbodji to make it 2-0.

Tunisia battled to get back into the game but the Teranga Lions proved to be strong in defense as well as strong in attack.
