After the clash of heads with Vozinha, Mane was allowed to go on and continue to play, even though the impact of the collision was quite harsh. What has baffled many is the fact that how was the 29-year old permitted to play the game as if nothing had happened. Well that’s another thing that the Liverpool star still managed to find the back of the net only six minutes later, providing Senegal with the lead.


Not long after his goal, Mane went down holding his head once more, ultimately convincing the authorities that the 29-year old needed some attending at the hospital.

Here’s what head coach Cisse had to say about Mane’s situation after the conclusion of the game, “Sadio had a big shock with the goalkeeper and I haven’t heard from him yet, he was dizzy and he is currently in the hospital”.

The player has recently posted a picture of him and Vozinha on social media with the captions, “Senegal vs Cape Verde on the pitch, in the hospital. Everything is fine, thank you for all the messages.”

That’s surely a message that will calm the Senegalese fans now. What remains to be seen is whether Mane will participate in Senegal’s quarter-final fixture in the African Cup of Nations now. Well since he has revealed that all is well, we should expect him to be part of the action, unless the doctors are of the opposite viewpoint.
