Mane was in terrific form for the Teranga Lions as they thrashed Mozambique 5-1 at the Abdoulaye Wade stadium last Friday. The 30-year-old forward scored in the big win.

The African champions will seal qualification to next year's Africa Cup of Nations if they beat Mozambique on Tuesday in Maputo.

Mane led Senegal to their first-ever AFCON title in Cameroon last year, scoring the winning penalty against Egypt. He repeated the feat in the World Cup qualifiers play-off.

However, injury ruled the winger out of the tournament played in Qatar.

Mane displays ball joggling skills

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Sadio Mane's return to international football has seen him reunite with former Liverpool and Senegal forward El Hadji Diouf.

Diouf is currently part of the technical team of Senegal as the Teranga Lions prepare to face Mozambique in the second-leg of their AFCON qualifiers.

Mane scored in the 5-1 first-leg thrashing of Mozambique at the newly-built Abdoulaye Wade Stadium.

Mane spotted reading the Quran

Sadio Mane's strong belief in his Islamic faith has always brought people close to him and even his teammates.

During Bayern Munich's trip to Leverkusen for their week 25 Bundesliga clash, the Senegalese forward was spotted reading the Holy Quran.

Out of curiosity, Thomas Muller captured the moment as Mane performed his religious duty.
