Sadio Mane: Who could replace injured Senegal superstar?

Goal.com

Things aren’t good for Sadio Mane’s World Cup hopes, with the Bayern Munich forward picking up an injury in Tuesday’s Bundesliga encounter with Werder Bremen that threatens to derail his participation in Qatar.

Initially, the injury didn’t appear overly significant, with Bayern’s assistant manager Dino Topmoeller telling Reuters that he would be fit in time for Qatar.

However, L’Equipe reported on Wednesday that Mane will miss the World Cup, with GOAL’s sources indicating that the initial prognosis is he faces between three and four weeks on the sidelines.

No one can truly replace Mane, who finished second in the Ballon d’Or and inspired Senegal to the African title earlier this year, but who are the players who could attempt to fill in for the Teranga Lion?
