VIDEO: £10m Southampton deadline day signing scores for Senegal

Senegal Olympics

Sadio Mane celebrated signing for Southampton by bagging a goal for his country yesterday.

Southampton may have lost plenty of players in the transfer market this summer, but they did not do a bad job of replacing them.

They snapped up the likes of Graziano Pelle, Dusan Tadic, Fraser Forster, Ryan Bertrand and Shane Long this summer and on deadline day made two more quality additions.

Toby Alderweireld arrived on a season long loan deal from Atletico Madrid whilst they splashed £10 million on Red Bull Salzburg's impressive forward Sadio Mane.

And the Senegalese star was on fire for his country last night as Senegal started their African Nations 2015 qualifying group with a 2-0 win against Egypt. The Lions of Teranga are in the 'Group of Death' alongside Egypt, Tunisia and Botswana so needed as good a start as possible, and they got it with this result over The Pharaohs.

Stoke City striker Mame Biram Diouf bagged the first, but Mane was the man-of-the-match with a scintillating display. Just before half-time he got his goal, and he could have had another - but was violently chopped down by Ahmed Said when about to burst through on goal.

But on this evidence, Southampton have spent their £10 million wisely.
