Sadio Mane has posted an injury update on his fitness after being forced off in Senegal’s win over Cape Verde.
The Liverpool forward suffered a clash of heads with opposition goalkeeper Vozinha while contending for a high ball during his country’s Round of 16 tie at the Africa Cup of Nations tonight.
After the clash the goalkeeper was sent off, while Mane was controversially allowed to continue – and incredibly proved to be the man to open the scoring six minutes later.
Later the 29-year-old went down again holding his head and eventually get subbed.
Mane has since posted a picture on social media of him alongside Vozinha, with the captions:
“Senegal vs Cape Verde in the pitch, in the hospital.
“Everything is fine, thank you all for the messages.”
