Senegalese footballer, Sadio Mané, has predicted that the Terranga Lions will beat the Super Eagles when the two African super houses clash on Thursday, March 23, 2017 in an international friendly in London.

Three-time African Champions Nigeria has not been beaten by their next opponent in the last 15 years, which was in February 7, 2002.

Liverpool striker Mané has turned a blind eye to those statistics, starting that Senegal will beat Nigeria if its current form is anything to go by.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) plans to use the upcoming matches against Senegal and Burkina Faso to prepare the national team for the African Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa in a few months’ time.
