Having done what some former Senegalese players could not do, the forward led his country to win its first African Cup of Nations (AFCON) trophy and also to book a slot in the 2022 Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) World Cup tournament in Qatar.

The 30-year-old did not only show class for his national team, but helped Liverpool to win the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and reached the finals of the UEFA Champions League.

He scored 23 goals for Liverpool last season in all competitions, scoring 16 premier league goals in 34 appearances, five in the champions League and two goals in the FA Cup tournament.

He broke former Senegalese Striker Henri Camara’s record to become Senegal’s all time leading goal scorer in the just ended AFCON qualifiers with 33 goals to his credit.
