A huge blow for the reigning African champion who will not be able to count on his captain in the Qatari meeting.

First announced as recoverable for the World Cup by the medical staff of Bayern Munich, the additional examinations carried out this morning revealed a tendon injury that would require several weeks of rest.


A key player in the prospects of Aliou Cissé, Sadio Mané will leave a huge void in the Senegalese selection during the final phase of the World Cup.

Aliou Cissé, the coach of the “Lions of Teranga” has to find a worthy replacement for Sadio Mané, even if the latter is irreplaceable given his status as a technical leader and the captain of the team.
