Senegal and Bayern Munich attacker, Sadio Mane may miss the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar due to injury.
The 30-year-old got injured last night, lasting only 20 minutes before getting substituted during Bayern Munich’s 6-1 win over Werder Bremen in a German Bundesliga encounter.
But on Wgednesday, L’Equipe, the French football newspaper, reported that the Senegalese forward will likely miss the football Mundial due to a blow to his tendon muscle.
According to L’Equipe, Mane “is expected to miss several weeks of competition” — and this could mean absence from the World Cup.
Aliou Cisse, Senegal’s coach, will announce his 26-man squad for the Qatar 2022 World Cup on Thursday (tomorrow).
The absence of Mane, who led Senegal to the AFCON title in January and ranked second in Ballon d’Or, would be a devastating blow to the chances of the Terenga Lions of Senegal in Qatar.
They are placed in group A alongside hosts Qatar, Ecuador, and the Netherlands in the competition set to take place from November 20 to December 18.
