Injured Mane makes Senegal World Cup Squad

Africa’s best player and Ballon d’Or runner-up, Sadio Mane, has been named in Senegal’s World Cup squad by coach Aliou Cisse on Friday despite his recent injury.

Mane cast doubt over his involvement in the tournament after he limped off during Bayern Munich’s 6-1 win over Werder Bremen in their Champions League last group stage match on Tuesday.

Bayern Munich 30-year-old was diagnosed with an injury to his right fibula and will undergo further tests.

Cisse said he hoped the condition of the Bayern Munich attacker would improve within a few weeks and declared himself “really optimistic” that the injury would not require an operation.

“I preferred to keep him in the group,” Cisse told reporters

“Sadio Mane is an important player in our squad, it is important to continue to follow his injury, hoping that in two or three weeks there will be progress. But we are really optimistic.

“We will give ourselves all the necessary means to allow Sadio Mane to recover.”

Senegal have been drawn in Group A and play the tournament opener against hosts Qatar on November 20, before going on to meet Netherlands and Ecuador.
