Injured Mane named in Senegal squad for World Cup qualifier

Sadio Mane has been named in the Senegal squad for their crunch Russia 2018 World Cup qualifying double-header against South Africa on November 10 and 14 by coach Aliou Cisse.

The 25-year-old suffered an injury during the Teranga Lions’ 2-0 win over Cape Verde in Praia, and has missed the Reds 0-0 draw against Manchester United and the 7-0 thrashing of Maribor.

But the west African giants’ boss has dispelled rumours the talismanic midfielder will miss the doubleheader against Stuart Baxter’s side and says he is expected to be fit for both games.
