Sadio Mane, a key player for Senegal, has been ruled out from the 2022 FIFA World Cup, according to L’Equipe.
Several players including Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, and Diogo Joto are among players who are also ruled out from the tournament.
Now that Senegalese sensation Sadio Mane has been reportedly ruled out of the World Cup, he represents possibly the biggest casualty to have occurred thus far.
Mane, who placed second in the Ballon d’Or race this year, was forced to leave Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen due to an injury last night
Despite initial optimism that Mane would be fit for Qatar, L’Equipe has since verified that he will miss the full tournament.
Senegal will suffer a severe setback as a result of Mane’s absence.
The team had been quietly confident that they could advance far in the competition due to their strong roster.
