Sadio Mane ruled out of 2022 World Cup

Senegal forward Sadio Mane has been ruled out of the World Cup because of the leg injury he sustained playing for Bayern Munich last week.

On Tuesday, Senegal’s football federation said Mane would miss their “first games” at the tournament but further tests have since been done.

Mane, 30, was forced off during Bayern’s win over Werder Bremen with an injury “to his right fibula”.
