Liverpool are reportedly hopeful that star forward Sadio Mane will return to Merseyside from worldwide duty early after Senegal's win over South Africa on Friday night sealed the country's World Cup qualification and ensured their final game in meaningless.

According to Federation Internationale de Football Association website, Diafra Sakho scored the opener for the visitors in Polokwane, before a somewhat fortuitous Thamsanqa Mkhize own goal sealed the three points for the Lions of Teranga.

Charlotte police: Air traffic controller possessed 'weapon of mass destruction'
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Fells had created a pipe bomb that he meant to use on a neighbor whom he was feuding with. CMPD bomb squad also responded and confirmed that the suspect did in fact have a homemade pipe bomb.

The result eliminates South Africa as well as Burkina Faso and Cape Verde, while Senegal qualify for their first finals since 2002 and will appear at the global showpiece tournament for just the second time in their history after an early strike from Diafra Sakho and an unfortunate own goal from Thamsanqa Mkhize. 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. The other two slots will be filled Saturday with north African countries Tunisia and Morocco needing draws to qualify.

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. The Hammers striker calmly put Mane's assist into the back of the net in the 12th minute.
