LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp is happy for Sadio Mane to play for Senegal in its crucial World Cup qualifiers, even though the winger has only just returned from a hamstring injury sustained on international duty last month.
LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Liverpool says Sadio Mane could be out for six weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury on international duty with Senegal.
Mane was substituted in the 89th minute of Senegal's 2-0 win over Cape Verde in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
The winger could miss six Liverpool matches, starting with the visit of Manchester United to Anfield on Saturday and also including a trip to Tottenham as well as Champions League games home and away against Maribor.
All five of Africa's World Cup places are still available and will only be claimed in the last two rounds of games.
After six days of qualifiers ended on Tuesday, the most significant development was who won't be in Russia: Cameroon, the African champion, was the first of the 20 teams in the final group stage to be eliminated. Others followed Cameroon out, but 15 of the 20 still have a chance of making it, even if some are long shots.
The African champion was humbled on Friday, with Cameroon losing 4-0 in Nigeria to see its World Cup hopes slipping away.
Cameroon wasn't the only big team left struggling in World Cup qualifying. Ghana was held 1-1 at home by Republic of Congo and needed a late equalizer for a point. Ghana still hasn't won in qualifying. South Africa led early but still lost 2-1 in Cape Verde.
