The poster boy of Senegalese football Sadio Mané has predicted that The Lions of Teranga will beat the Super Eagles when the two African powerhouses clash on Thursday in an international friendly in London.
Three-time African champions Nigeria have not been beaten by their next opponents in the last forty years, with their last defeat coming on October 30, 1977.
Liverpool winger Mane has turned a blind eye to those statistics, stating that Senegal will beat Nigeria if current form is anything to go by.
“Senegal is the best, Nigeria not best any more. Senegal will beat you guys in London, “ Mane said.
In the updated FIFA ranking, Senegal are ranked second in Africa while the Super Eagles occupy seventh position.
