Sadio Mane scores beauty after nasty head collision

Sadio Mane scored a beauty for Senegal in their Round of 16 clash at the Africa Cup of Nations, but his heroics came at a cost.

The Liverpool star was clattered by Cape Verde goalkeeper Vozinha in the 57th minute, as the goalkeeper was sent off and Cape Verde were reduced to nine men.

However, following his celebrations he then received treatment on the pitch and was helped off by the Senegal medical staff as he was substituted with a suspected concussion.
