Incredible scenes during the 1/8 finals of the CAN between Senegal and Cape Verde. A little before the hour mark, Sadio mane is the victim of a collision in the head with the goalkeeper grandma while the score is still 0-0. The Liverpool striker remains on the ground for a long time before getting up. The goalkeeper receives a red card, the second for his team. 5 minutes later, the Senegal star wraps the ball perfectly around the corner of the large rectangle. The second guardian of Cape Verde is beaten, the Senegalese are jubilant.
But the joy will not last long. Just before the ball is put back into play, mane collapses on the ground, victim of the repercussions of this shock to the head. Fortunately, the Liverpool player ends up getting up. It will eventually be replaced out of caution. Even if he scored, one is entitled to wonder if he really should have continued after the terrible shock he suffered.
Senegal will eventually win the game 2-0.
