Liverpool FC rocked by Sadio Mane blow

Liverpool has been rocked as it seems that the Reds may miss Sadio Mane next month in the Premier League against Norwich City.

The striker helped Senegal to reach the final of the African Nations Cup on Sunday. The final took place exactly three weeks before the start of the Reds.

And since Liverpool offers about three weeks of vacation to its players, who were on international service this summer, Mane is a serious opponent in the Canary Islands.

A bizarre own-goal in extra time brought Senegal into the final with a 1-0 victory over Tunisia.

An error from goalkeeper Mouez Hassen in the 1

00th minute left the ball from the head of defender Dylan Bronn and bounce trickles into the net.

Hassen rushed to the penalty spot to cut a cross from the right flank, but missed the ball, which then hit the unfortunate Bronn.

Ferjani Sassi missed a penalty for Tunisia and Henri Saivet also for Senegal, but that was not the end of the drama.

Tunisia felt hurt when they received another late penalty when Salif Sane hit the ball against Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye's arm, only to make it controversial after a VAR check.
