Sadio Mane is set to lead Senegal into action against Equatorial Guinea as his side eye a place in the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Mane was a doubt for the game after a clash of heads with Cape Verde’s goalkeeper Vozinha in Senegal’s 2-0 win in their last-16 tie, scoring immediately after the incident but then being substituted and taken to hospital.

Despite reports Liverpool had asked Mane not to play as a precaution, the forward is set to line up against Equatorial Guinea, who reached the quarter-finals after seeing off Mali 6-5 in a tense penalty shoot-out following a 0-0 draw.
