Senegalese and Bayern Munich star man, Sadio Mane has been sadly ruled out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup following an early injury he sustained earlier this week according to L’Equipe.
The 30-year-old attacker will miss the Mundial due to a tendon injury he suffered in a league game for the German champions yesterday.
Sadio Mané was withdrawn after just 20 minutes of the penultimate game week of the Bundesliga season before the World Cup in Qatar, which begins in under two weeks.
L’Équipe report that the former Liverpool forward has suffered from a tendon knock, which will see him miss several weeks, therefore ruling him out of the World Cup.
His absence will be a huge blow to Senegal, who go into the tournament as African champions, and with a squad certainly capable of going deep into the tournament.
Senegal will face the Netherlands, Ecuador, and host country Qatar.
