Mane Suspended for Senegal's AFCON Opener



Sadio Mane will miss Senegal’s opening Africa Cup of Nations fixture against Tanzania due to a suspension, according to head coach Aliou Cisse.

The Liverpool superstar will sit out the West Africans’ first Group C fixture – which will take place at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo later this month – after picking up two yellow cards during the qualifying campaign.

Mane was booked in Senegal’s 1-0 victory against Equatorial Guinea in Malabo in November last year, with the Confederation of African Football also recording another booking in a 2-0 victory over Madagascar in March.

Senegal departed for Egypt on Saturday, having previously been at a training camp in Alicante.

Mane will be available for the showdown with Algeria on June 27 and their final group-stage clash against Kenya on July 1.
