Sadio Mane scored a 98th-minute penalty in Senegal’s 1-0 win over Rwanda to maintain the African champions’ perfect start to 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.

The forward settled an uninteresting game in the Senegalese capital, Dakar, with the penalty kick and breaking Rwanda’s resistance.

It is the second time this year the Liverpool forward has converted a spot-kick deep into added time, after his 97th-minute winner against Zimbabwe in Senegal’s opening Nations Cup game in Cameroon.

Mane – who scored the winning penalty in the Nations Cup final – also scored a hat-trick in last Saturday’s win over Benin Republic to become Senegal’s record goal scorer.
