Senegal unveil 26 man squad for Super Eagles friendly
Senegal has named a 26-man squad ahead of their friendly match against Nigeria on the 23rd of March in London.
Top of the list of players is Liverpool attacker, Sadio Mane.
Also in the Teranga Lions side for the friendly are Idrissa Gana Gueye, Kalidou Koulibaly, Kara Mbodj, Cheikhou Kouyate, Henry Saivet and Diao Baldé Keïta.
Coach Aliou Cisse also called up for the first time to Moussa Wagué of Eupen, Adama Mbengue of Orlando City and ex-France Under-20 international Opa Nguette of Metz.
Anderlecht defender Mbodji is named in the squad after he made himself available for selection despite struggling with a knee injury in recent weeks, but the team will be without Newcastle United’s Mohamed Diame who has announced his retirement from international football.
Senegal were semi-finalists at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
