Mane's Mood Ahead of Clash With Bafana

Senegalese winger Sadio Mane is making his way back to South Africa ahead of his national team's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier re-match with Bafana Bafana. Can you guess how the Liverpool striker is feeling ahead of the game?

It's all smiles for Mane, it seems. The 25-year-old was seen grinning from ear to ear while seated in an aeroplane with a national teammate in a photo that he uploaded to Instagram just before Liverpool's match against West Ham at the weekend, and he appears to be bringing this positive energy with him to SA.

Take a look!

my man @iganagueye 🙏national team time 🙏

The former Southampton star, who only recently returned from injury, appears to be in high spirits, and told the BBC: "I am very happy to be back because it was not easy. There's no excuse for me now – I was injured but I was always working hard."

When asked how he feels about facing Bafana Bafana, the Premier League star responded with the following: "It's going to be tough because we know how South Africa is, even when they are not in good form. We respect them but we also know we have quality and we have a great team, and I think we can do it."

It seems the Liverpool ace's confidence is soaring ahead of the fixture, and Bafana will be hoping he doesn’t rediscover his form from the beginning of the season before he was sideline due to suspension and then injury – because, at his best, he is simply unplayable...

Do you think Mane will be Bafana's biggest obstacle during the crucial WC fixtures?
