Liverpool are reportedly hopeful that star forward Sadio Mane will return to Merseyside from worldwide duty early after Senegal's win over South Africa on Friday night sealed the country's World Cup qualification and ensured their final game in meaningless.

The victory in Polokwane gave the "Teranga Lions" an unassailable lead at the top of Group D and with that their second appearance at the tournament.

Speaking on the matter, Jurgen Klopp said, "I'm really happy for Senegal that they could go to the World Cup and they need Sadio Mane for this, I understand, he is fit to play".

Washington Redskins receiver makes leaping 1-handed catch for touchdown
S DeAngelo Hall sprained his right knee late in the second quarter, pressing CB Kendall Fuller to play out of position. Crowder, 24, played in his first 40 National Football League games (20 starts) before missing the Seattle game.

Senegal were two points ahead of Burkina Faso and Cape Verde's who are their closest rivals before the match and they now took a 5-point advantage just before the last quafying round. Senegal are the third African qualifiers for the World Cup in Russian Federation after Nigeria and Egypt, who secured places during the penultimate qualifying round last month.

Senegal are set to play South Africa again on Tuesday in a game that will be a mere formality and Liverpool will be hoping that Mane will be released before then so that he can avoid risking injury.

After a bright opening from the hosts, it was an incisive piece of passing that put Senegal in the lead on 12 minutes.

Tennessee AD Comments On Butch Jones Firing
LSU and Tennessee are set to square off on Saturday in Knoxville in what will be the Vols' first game under an interim coach. The struggles in 2017 come after Jones had led the Vols to consecutive 9-4 seasons, as well as three straight bowl wins.

The home side might have equalised midway through the first half when Themba Zwane's shot was only parried by Senegal keeper Khadim N'Diaye, and Percy Tau turned home the rebound.

Mane failed to get a solid connection on his shot from eight yards that was saved by Khune, but the ball deflected off the back of Mkhize and dribbled into the Bafana net.
