Senegal and Bayern Munich striker Sadio Mane will not take part in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, his country’s federation announced on Thursday.

Mane, 30, picked up the injury in Bayern’s 6-1 win over Werder Bremen on Nov. 8. He was substituted on 20 minutes with the team describing it as an injury to the head of the fibula bone in his lower right leg the day after the match.

Despite the injury, Mane was still included in the Senegal squad for the World Cup and was expected to miss at least their first game of the tournament against Netherlands on Nov. 20.

However, the team revealed in a press conference on Thursday that further scans on the two-time African player of the year showed he would require surgery for the injury and would not be able to play in Qatar.

Senegal will face hosts Qatar and Ecuador in Group A after their opener against the Dutch.
