  • Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is still reeling from injury and therefore it is more than likely that Alfred Gomis will start in goal. Badou Ndiaye and Kalidou Koulibaly will have to be careful as they are a booking away from Suspension
  • Also suffering from injury is defender Salif Sane, which will impact the back 4 of the Senegal team who are expected to play Gassama and Sabaly, who was exceptional against Uganda, as their full backs with Wague and Balde to begin on the bench. .
