Liverpool's Sadio Mane leads Senegal to World Cup as they win away

Just one day before closing day, Senegal, undefeated in five matches, is unreachable for its contenders and is the 3rd African team in obtaining its ticket for Russian Federation in 2018, after Nigeria and Egypt.

Senegal became the third African side to qualify for next year's World Cup finals after defeating South Africa 2-0 away from home in a replayed match on Friday.

Senegal stunned the world by beating World Cup holders France in their first ever game at the global finals in 2002.

With games against Southampton, Sevilla and Chelsea to come in the Premier League and the Champions League, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will sincerely hope that Mane is afforded time off of playing duty when Senegal line up against South Africa on Tuesday.

Now South Africa occupies the last place in the group, behind the leading Senegal by 4 points. The last two qualifiers from Africa will be decided on Saturday.

Tunisia host out-of-contention Libya in Group A holding a three-point advantage over the Democratic Republic of Congo, who play Guinea in Kinshasa.
