The Liverpool star was slammed by Cape Verde keeper Vozinha in the 57th minute as the keeper was sent off and Cape Verde were reduced to nine men.

Sadio Mane remained on the pitch and six minutes later he put in a fine effort off the crossbar to put Senegal 1-0 up.

However, after his celebrations, he was later treated on the pitch and assisted by Senegalese medical staff as he was substituted with a suspected concussion.

Mane went to hospital and a photo of him with Vozinha was posted by Confederation of African Football on their social media accounts. Mane’s current injury status is unknown.

Mane cheered the crowd as he walked away, but there will be huge questions asked about how he was able to continue playing after the initial collision.

Senegal ended up winning the game 2-0 as they qualified for the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Videos of how he was injured and his fine goal (his second of the tournament) are below as Liverpool will be monitoring Mane’s health closely after the bad collision.
