Mane Wins Group J

A goal six minutes from time courtesy of Sadio Mane saw Senegal steal a 1-0 win over Uganda on Saturday in a Group J 2014 World Cup qualifier at the Stade de Marrakech.

The win saw Senegal secure a spot in the final stages of qualifying for the tournament in Brazil next year after they finished top of the group on 12 points ahead of Uganda who finished second with eight points.

It was a cagey affair from the get go with neither side offering too much in attack as both opted to play it cautious and keep things tight at the back.

This made for a hard tackling game, especially in the middle of the park as both teams tried to grab a foothold in the game.

Consequently, it made for a rather sloppy game as neither team could hold onto the ball for sustained periods of play and create decent chances on goal.

Instead, the game was characterised by poor passing and some rough tackles, one of these tackles leading to Uganda being reduced to ten men when Godfrey Walusimbi was shown a straight red card in the 38th minute.

Still, despite being a man to the good, Senegal could not take advantage and create some decent scoring opportunities.

Nonetheless, the home side persevered and were rewarded for their determination in the 84th minute when Mane grabbed the winning goal with a clinical finish, 1-0, to seal their place in the last qualifying stage for Brazil 2014.
