Bayern winger Sadio Mane had to stop battling after twenty minutes on Tuesday evening. Due to an injury, Senegal’s main player, the Orange’s opponent in the World Cup group stage, had to be changed.
Early in the game, the attacker was hit in the knee by Werder Bremen defender Amos Pieper while attempting to catch the ball. Mané is racing against the clock; in thirteen days, Senegal and the Netherlands will face off in Group A of the World Cup.
Bayern winger Sadio Mane is racing against the clock
Mané is Senegal’s undisputed star player; with 34 goals, he leads the national team in scoring. On his path to the World Cup, he scored three goals for Senegal.
Bayern is having an unusually casual match as it approaches the final game before the World Cup. Sadio Mané’s departure will cause concern at the club (and especially Senegal). “He got struck on the top of the shin. “That’s always uncomfortable,” coach Julian Nagelsmann stated. “He might have to go through certain exams. I really hope it’s nothing major.”
Bayern Munich is the leader in the final round before the World Cup begins. Ryan Gravenberch appeared briefly in the second half.
The midfielder came on twenty minutes early and has played more than 500 minutes this season as a result of his substitutions. Bayern had grabbed the lead early on through Jamal Musiala, but Werder quickly equalised with a true rugby attack. Werder began on the right and crossed several discs to the left of the field. Where back Anthony Jung attempted a low and strong shot.
Bayern didn’t waste any time getting things back in order. Serge Gnabry (twice) and Leon Goretzka scored within six minutes. Gnabry completed his hat-trick late in the second half. After a pass from basic player Noussair Mazraoui, the attacker had a wonderful solo in the house, which he finished with a smart tap. The last chord, though, went to Mathys Tel, a seventeen-year-old substitute who hit powerfully following a rush from his own penalty area.
