Potent attacking African threats teams need to be wary of
The World Cup commences in under 3 weeks time and the players will be raring to go. From Africa, 5 teams have qualified for the finals. With some talented African players on show, it will be interesting to see how far the teams will go.
With a number of African stars plying their trade in Europe, viewers from the African continent have steadily grown and increased. The European leagues still boast some of the world’s finest goal scorers from Africa.
The likes of Mane, Salah and Musa have all lit up PL audiences but will face another kind of pressure at the World Cup, playing for their countries.
Here we take a look at the top five Africans players headed to the World Cup in Russia.
Senegal’s attacking gem, Sadio Mane will go into this competition high on form after an impressive season for Liverpool. With the club in the Champions League final, Mane will have eyes firmly set on the World Cup only after their showcase meeting with Real Madrid.
Mane has been in sensational form along with Salah and Firmino for his club but will have to adapt to football without his two favourite front men and produce displays by himself to help Senegal advance.
A blistering quick footballer with great technique and ability, Mane possess the quality to win games out of nothing with something spectacular. Whether he can continue his good form at the World Cup, only time will tell but he is one dangerous player.
