Senegal's attacking potential at the 2022 World Cup: Who will be the mainstay if Sadio Mane is dead? - The consistency of Sadio Mane's game will greatly affect the performance of the Senegal national team at the 2022 World Cup. The 30-year-old player clearly makes the Senegalese national team a strong candidate for the 2022 World Cup dark horse.

The Bayern Munich player proved his capacity at club level by becoming Bayern Munich's top scorer in the Bundesliga with five goals. Last season Mane was also outstanding by scoring 23 goals for Liverpool and bringing Senegal to the African Cup of Nations.

Thanks to his slick performance, Mane even finished in second place in the 2022 Ballon d'Or award. His name is right behind Karim Benzema who came out as the winner with his fantastic season with Real Madrid.

But Senegal cannot rely entirely on Sadio Mane alone to go far in Qatar. Senegal will have to take advantage of several other players in case Mane finds himself deadlocked in scoring. Here are some Senegalese players who can patch up Mane when he gets stuck.

Potential Young Players: Ismaila Sarr and Iliman Ndiaye

From now on, the Senegalese national team must make room for their potential young players. Names like Ismaila Sarr and IlIman Ndiaye deserve to be given the same scoring burden as Sadio Mane.

Ismaila Sarr is a Senegalese player who can give a surprise in attack. The 24-year-old has had experience playing in Europe's top leagues since the age of 18.

Currently Ismaila Sarr, who has entered his third season at Watford, has scored 28 goals and 21 assists. Sarr has also scored 10 goals since making his debut for the Senegalese national team in January 2017.

Besides Sarr, Iliman Ndiaye's goal-scoring ability is also to be reckoned with. Both playing in the Championship, Ndiaye is the sharpest midfielder in the English cave competition.

Ndiaye, who plays as an attacking midfielder, has scored six goals in nine games for Sheffield United. With this nick, Ndiaye became Sheffield United's top scorer temporarily.

Boulaye Dia On Fire!

Besides Mane, Senegal also still has sharp players who are on fire. The player is named Boulaye Dia who plays as a striker in the Senegal national team.

Boulaye He is a Villareal player who is currently on loan at Serie A team, Salernitana. Playing in Europe makes the 25-year-old striker worthy to be reckoned with as an alternative goal granary for Sadio Mane.

Currently Ndiaye is also included in the ranks of Serie A's top scorers with Salernitana with four goals. He is only two goals adrift of the top scorer in Serie A, Marko Arnautovic.

In the Senegalese national team, Boulaye He has also started to get a place in the main squad. The friendly match against Bolivia in September 2022 was the last time he listed his name on the scoreboard for the Senegal national team.
