During Senegal’s AFCON victory over Cape Verde, Sadio Mane was pulled off the field with a head injury

Senegal’s Sadio Mane scored in their Africa Cup of Nations victory over Cape Verde Islands, however he had to be replaced due to a head injury.

After 62 minutes, the Liverpool striker scored from a set-piece, but he was sent off after a brutal collision of heads with Cape Verde goalkeeper Vozinha.

Mane subsequently departed the field in the 70th minute, complaining of a headache. Senegal advanced to the quarter-finals when Bamba Dieng scored the second goal. Mane, on the other hand, might be a question for the match against Limbe on Sunday.

The 29-year-old was pulled back to his feet by his teammates before being taken off the field by medical personnel from the national team. Liverpool are still waiting for word on his health.

Senegal captain Kalidou Koulibaly remarked after the game, “It was a difficult game because Cape Verde were well structured.”

“After the first red card, it was even more tough since they really raced around, but we can be satisfied we got the job done.”
