How Senegal Will Fare Without Mane


Cisse said Senegal’s medical team hoped that Mané would need about a week to recover from the injury he sustained on Tuesday in a league game and therefore be ready for Senegal’s opening game at the World Cup against the Netherlands on Nov. 21 — on paper the strongest team Senegal will face in Group A in Qatar. Ballon d’Or runner-up Sadio Mane was named in Senegal’s World Cup squad by coach Aliou Cisse on Friday despite of a recent injury.

Cisse said that he is confident that Mane will be available for the World Cup and that he is a key player for the team.
