But what appears to be talking point from Senegal's pre-World Cup preparatory game against Bolivia was an awkward incident involving talisman Sadio Mané.

In a video posted on Twitter, seen by Sports Brief, the former Liverpool attacker who was trying to initiate an attack from the halfway line tripped after failing to control the ball.

The Senegal No.10 moved the ball forward a couple of times and appeared to have a change of plans when he tried to halt his run to locate a teammate however, his control was mistimed as the ball left him which led to his fall.

The incident has left social media users in stitches following Sadio Mane's Lukaku-like moment.
