English Premier League combined as pair Sakho opened the scoring off a pass from Liverpool attacker Mane and both were involved in the move that led to a Thamsanqa Mkhize own-goal before half-time.

Senegal were looking to secure their place at next summer's World Cup during the worldwide break with Mane playing a starring role in their attack. Two achievements that were enough for Aliou Cissé's men to win this match who have lost in November 2016 because of a poor referee decision.

Senegal are set to play South Africa again on Tuesday in a game that will be a mere formality and Liverpool will be hoping that Mane will be released before then so that he can avoid risking injury.

Sadio Mane found some space on the right and his defence-splitting ball was flawless for Sakho to slide the ball past the masked Itumeleng Khune in the Bafana goal.

Love got back to his highly productive ways in this one, and Stanford's offensive line continued their dominant ways. That sets up an intriguing matchup for the Huskies defense, which will be trying to stop Stanford star Bryce Love .

Goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye failed to grasp a fierce close-range Themba Zwane shot, but recovered to catch the rebound after the ball struck inrushing Percy Tau.

It turned out to be the winning goal for Senegal, as they shut out the Bafana Bafana on the road to return to the World Cup.

Manyama had a free-kick that provided a nervous moment for N'Diaye late in the first half, but the keeper made the save in the top corner of his net. It's unknown how long he could miss, if any time at all.

With Mane having struggled with injury absences at various points in his Liverpool career to date, the club is being understandably cautious with his fitness and want no risks of re-injury, especially in unnecessary circumstances such as Senegal's "dead rubber" qualifier.
