Sadio Mane has been included in Senegal's squad for the World Cup in Qatar despite suffering an injury scare on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old forward was forced off in the first half of Bayern Munich's 6-1 victory over Werder Bremen.

The German champions said he had an injury "to the head of his right fibula" and will miss Saturday's game against Schalke.

Senegal begin their Group A campaign against the Netherlands on 21 November.

"We are monitoring the situation and we sent a doctor from the federation," Senegal coach Aliou Cisse said at a press conference in the Senegalese capital Dakar on Friday.

"On Thursday, Sadio spent the whole day in Munich before travelling to Austria for further tests. The good news is that he does not need an operation.

"It is important to continue to monitor his injury and hope that in two or three weeks there is a change. We will give everything to have Sadio back."
