Senegal star Sadio Mane has been ruled out of the 2022 World Cup because of an injury to his right fibula, the country’s football Federation announced on Thursday.

“Unfortunately, today’s (Thursday) MRI shows us that the improvement is not as favourable as we imagined and unfortunately we have to withdraw Sadio from the World Cup,” said the team doctor, Manuel Afonso in a video on the official Senegal Twitter account.
