Senegal’s Sadio Mané ruled out of World Cup despite ‘successful surgery’

Senegal forward Sadio Mané has been ruled out of the World Cup in Qatar in a crushing blow to his team’s chances, with Bayern Munich confirming the forward had undergone “successful surgery” in Austria on Thursday. 

Mané had been a doubt for the tournament after picking up a leg injury playing for Bayern last week, and it has now been confirmed he will not recover in time.

Senegal Football Federation officials announced that further scans had revealed the need for surgery. Mané is the talisman of the Senegal side and a key player for them in attack. His absence will be a blow to their chances of advancing out of Group A, where they face the Netherlands on Monday before playing host nation Qatar and Ecuador. 

Bayern Munich later provided more details on Mané’s injury and subsequent operation. 

“Sadio Mané underwent successful surgery in Innsbruck by Prof Christian Fink and Dr Andy Williams from London on Thursday evening,” a club statement read. 

“During the operation, a tendon was reattached to the head of his right fibula. The FC Bayern forward will therefore no longer be available to play for Senegal at the World Cup and will begin his rehab in Munich in the next few days.” 

Argentina have called up forward Ángel Correa to replace Nicolás González in their World Cup squad after the latter sustained a muscle injury. 

“After today’s training session, Nicolás González suffered a muscle injury and will not be included in the World Cup squad. In his place, the national team staff has called up Ángel Correa,” Argentina said in a statement on Thursday.

The announcement came a day after coach Lionel Scaloni said the squad could change before Argentina’s opening World Cup match against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. 

The Copa América champions are also sweating on the fitness of defender Christian Romero and forwards Alejandro Gómez and Paulo Dybala, all of whom were left out of Argentina’s last warm-up match on Wednesday. 

Ansu Fati seized his chance to impress Spain manager Luis Enrique as the Barcelona youngster scored in his side’s 3-1 victory over Jordan in their own warm-up match.
