Fans in Africa believe Senegal would have been too hot to handle had they had Sadio Mane in the squad during their 2022 World Cup campaign.

The Teranga Lions beat Ecuador 2-1 courtesy of goals from winger Ismaila Sarr and captain Kalidou Koulibaly to become the first African country to qualify for the Round of 16 on Tuesday.

Supporters, however, feel they would have sealed their place earlier and go far had the Bayern Munich forward, who was ruled out of the tournament by an injury, been around.
