World Cup injuries 2022 tracker: List of players who could miss out on Qatar due to injury


The 30-year-old Bayern Munich player was forced off of the match against Werder Bremen on Tuesday evening. Mane is reportedly set to miss the 2022 World Cup.

Another big star could be watching the World Cup from home in France, according to L’Equipe. Sadio Mane had to leave Bayern Munich’s 6-1 demolition of Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Tuesday night.

Mane left just 19 minutes into the match with what was reported to be a hamstring problem that would rule the player out of the FIFA World Cup, which starts in two weeks. Mane is optimistic he could feature in the tournament, a report from L’Equipe would suggest otherwise.

World Cup rosters are announced and teams can name their 26-man rosters and substitutes in case of serious injury. Here are the other top stars not to miss at the FIFA World Cup.
