The bad news for Bafana Bafana fans is that Sadio Mane's already building his fitness for Senegal's all-important World Cup qualifier

The speedster Mane started for Liverpool in a 4-1 victory against West Ham United on Saturday evening.

After being out with a hamstring injury, he was expected to be rusty in his first game. However he surprised everyone for starting the game on Saturday, when the original feeling is that he'd be out for at least another two weeks.

Jurgen Klopp's hailed Mane as a machine with the way he's healed ahead of time, and was back to his powerful, speedy self in London. That was the game time he required to get back into the groove ahead of the qualifier against South Africa.

Senegal could qualify for Russia 2018 if they draw against Bafana Bafana in Polokwane on Friday night. Here's a mixture of the fan reaction from Mane's recovery, to his performance for Liverpool against West Ham. 

We also throw in a few bonus Tweets about his partnership with Egypt forward Mohamed Salah, while the two African stars were both nominated for the Caf Player of the Year award.
