Sadio Mane of Bayern Munich has been ruled out of the World Cup owing to a fibula injury he received earlier this month vs Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, dealing Senegal a severe blow before the tournament has even started. The Lions of Teranga’s coach AliouCisse initially thought that the problem would only prohibit his star player from playing in the team’s first or second games, but Cisse will now need to modify his tactical strategy to deal with the ex-Liverpool player’s absence.
Senegal’s first-ever Africa Cup of Nations victory and qualification for Qatar were both secured by Mane’s two game-winning penalties against Egypt earlier this year. Mane’s absence in attack leaves only IsmailaSarr as well as FamaraDiedhiou with double digits of goals scored (10 each) for their respective national teams.
Although Cisse’s team has kept six clean sheets in their past eight competitive games, which has proven to be the foundation of their previous AFCON win and World Cup qualifying, Cisse’s team is often difficult to break down. In order to get to the knockout round, the 46-year-old will almost probably want his team to play defensively against the Netherlands before moving on to more winnable matches against Qatar and Ecuador.
Meanwhile, the Netherlands is entering the World Cup in great shape under the leadership of Louis van Gaal after making it to their second consecutive UEFA Nations League final. Although the legitimacy of the young tournament is sometimes questioned, every three of Oranje’s opponents in Group 4 – Belgium, Poland, and Wales – will take part in the next World Cup, making their point total of 16 from six games seem even more remarkable than it initially appears to be.
Despite failing to qualify again for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the Netherlands did make it all the way to the semifinals in 2014 under the guidance of Louis van Gaal, ultimately falling to Argentina in a penalty shootout following a goalless draw over 120 minutes.
Despite lacking a sprinkling of star individual skill compared to their past close calls, there is rising optimism that this may be their year. They are often recognized as the greatest footballing country not to ever win the World Cup after losing three finals in 1974, 1978, and 2010. It will be crucial to get off to a solid start against Senegal next Monday in order to keep spirits high, with van Gaal potentially feeling more confident to go for the kill given the aforementioned lack of Mane here on the opposing team sheet.
Senegal qualify for the World Cup by leading their qualifying campaign and going undefeated. They then defeated Egypt 3-1 in penalties following a two-legged play-off game of 1-1 on aggregate. Senegal will be competing in their third World Cup; their first tournament was in 2002 when they achieved their greatest result by making the quarterfinals. They failed to get through their group at its second World Cup last year.
The Netherlands won their World Cup qualification group, going undefeated in the process. Despite participating in this competition for the eleventh time, they haven’t ever won a World Cup; their best results have been as runners-up in 1974, 1978, and 2010.
The absence of Senegal’s great player Sadio Mane will be a big loss for the squad, and as a result, it is probable also that the Netherlands will triumph.
