“I think that’s what Eswatini did today. Eswatini kept us in check, but these things can sometimes happen in football.

 “Now we have to get back on track and put all the assets on our side to be able to win this kind of match to continue our progress.

“We should not lose with all the respect I have for Eswatini. Especially at home, if you lose this kind of games, you have to ask yourself questions. Fortunately, we did not lose.

“We are Senegal and we will try to continue to progress. However, it must be recognized that there are things to be resolved in this team.

“We hope that the coach and his staff will do it in the best possible way to be able to start qualifying for the World Cup, qualify and go for the Africa Cup of Nations.”

Mane has made 72 appearances for the West African country since making his debut in 2012 and played a key role as they finished as runner-up at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
