Senegal star Sadio Mane has been ruled out for the World Cup with an ankle injury

Senegal forward Sadio Mane is in doubt for the World Cup after Bayern Munich said on Wednesday he would miss the final league game before the tournament with a foot injury.

Byrne said the two-time African Player of the Year suffered an injury to the top of the fibula bone in his right leg. Bayern did not reveal how serious the injury might be, saying only that Mane will not be available for Saturday’s game against Schalke.

“Further tests will follow in the coming days. FC Bayern is also in contact with the medical staff of the Senegalese Football Association,” Bayern said in a statement.

Mane was in visible discomfort after picking up a blow to his right leg early in Bayern’s 6-1 win over Werder Bremen on Tuesday and was substituted in the 20th minute.

Mane scored the winning penalty to beat Egypt in a shootout in the Africa Cup of Nations final in February. He joined Bayern from Liverpool in June in a deal worth 41 million euros ($41.3 million), subject to performance-related bonuses.

Senegal plays its first match on November 21 against the Netherlands in Group A, which also includes hosts Qatar and Ecuador.
