FIFA World Cup 2022 will commence from November 20 in Qatar. Every footballer’s ultimate dream is to play for his country at the World Cup. However, many a times some deserving players fail to participate in the World Cup. This time also, a lot of big players are going to miss the World Cup in Qatar. Some of them are not selected in the squad of their respective countries, some players are unable to go to Qatar because their nation has not been qualified while some other will miss the current edition due to injuries. Sadio Mane is one of those popular names who will miss FIFA World Cup 2022. He is among the best forward players in the world but still he is not playing in the biggest football tournament. The fans are confused and want to know as to why Sadio Mane is not playing in the World Cup 2022 at Qatar?
Why Sadio Mane is not playing in World Cup 2022 Qatar?
Bayern Munich and Senegal forward Sadio Mane is not there at the World Cup because he has been ruled out of the tournament due to an injury. Mane suffered an injury while playing for Bayern Munich against Werder Bremen. The Senegal skipper came off the pitch after playing for just 20 minutes. Bayer won that game 6-1. Sadio suffered from a tendon and will miss several weeks of competition. Mane is Senegal’s highest goal scorer with 34 goals.
It is a huge blow for the Senegal Football team as well as for the fans. Mane was going to play his second World Cup but unfortunately he has to wait for another four years now. All of this put Mané in good stead for a starring role in Qatar. Sadio Mane led Senegal to the trophy of African Cup of Nations for the first time in February. He also played a crucial role in the World Cup qualifiers.
Senegal have been placed in Group A along with Netherlands, Qatar and Ecuador. The African Champions will enter the World Cup without their talisman.
