Saints’ Emmanuel Mayuka and Sadio Mané were both involved in Africa Cup of Nations 2015 qualifying wins on Saturday.

Mayuka played for Zambia as they beat Mozambique 1-0 in a Group F qualifier thanks to Given Singuluma’s goal.
The win gives Zambia a great chance of qualifying for the tournament finals next year. They now sit on eight points from five games, with Mozambique three behind on five points.
Zambia need to pick up just a point against Cape Verde on Wednesday 19th November, kick-off 4pm GMT.
Southampton’s other African international in action on Saturday was Mané, as Senegal beat Egypt 1-0 in Cairo to qualify for the finals in 2015.
The visitors took the lead in just the eighth minute as Mame Biram Diouf, of Stoke City, leapt highest from a free-kick to head past the Egyptian goalkeeper.
That was all that was needed to seal Senegal’s spot at next year’s finals. They are now guaranteed to finish second in Group G but have the chance to pick up another three points at home to Botswana on Wednesday, kick-off 7pm GMT.
