Bad News For Africa as Sadio Mane Ruled Out of The World Cup

It is a huge blow for Senegal and Africa at large after Sadio Mane's chances of playing in the coming World Cup were reduced significantly after the former Liverpool attacker picked up an injury while playing for Bayern Munich.

It has been reported that Sadio Mane will be sidelined for several weeks after the injury. Mane was withdrawn after just 20 minutes of Tuesday night’s 6-1 victory over Werder Bremen.

The Senegal Star underwent a scan on Wednesday, and according to reports, the injury to his tendon means he will be unable to play for several weeks, ruling him out of the World Cup.

Senegal who won the last Africa Cup of Nations after beating Mohamed Salah's Egypt and later beating them for the second time to book a place in the Qatar World cup was one of the African teams that had a high potential of causing trouble to top teams from other continents.

Sadio Mane was very pivotal in his team's journey to Qatar. It is clear his absence will be a huge blow to the whole continent.
