WATCH: Mane suffers suspected concussion as Senegal beat Cape Verde

There were alarming scenes at the Africa Cup of Nations as Sadio Mane suffered a suspected concussion in helping Senegal reach the quarter-finals. 

The Liverpool striker opened the scoring against Cape Verde, but was substituted minutes afterwards having seemingly collapsed.

Mane was involved in a serious clash of heads with Cape Verde's Vozinha, which led to the goalkeeper being shown a red card 12-minutes into the second half.

The 29-year old appeared clearly dazed at the time, but was allowed to continue.

At first, the decision paid dividends as he curled a right-footed shot into the top corner of the Cape Verde net just after the hour mark.

Shortly thereafter, the scene became a worrying one as Mane slumped to the ground and required assistance to leave the field.

Bamba Nieng added a second for Senegal to help them reach the quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over their nine men opposition.

Vozinha's dismissal came after Patrick Andrade was shown a red card midway through the first half.

Cape Verde also lost Roberto Lopes at half-time. The Shamrock Rovers defender had been one of a number of their squad to suffer from food poisoning in recent days. Videos posted to social media graphically showed the bug biting Lopes hard.
