Kalidou Koulibaly named in Senegal squad

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and Watford forward Ismaila Sarr have both been named in the Senegal

squad for the Africa Cup of Nations as they recover from injury.

Koulibaly, 30, had been a doubt for the tournament after picking up a thigh strain in a match against Sassuolo on 1 December.

Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly is set to captain Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Winger Sarr’s last game was Watford’s 4-1 win over Manchester United on 20 November, in which the 23-year-old scored before

being replaced as he suffered a knee injury.

Despite neither man playing since those injuries they have both been included in Senegal coach Aliou Cisse’s 27-man squad

for the finals that kick-off on 9 January in Cameroon.

The 2019 runners-up are in Group B alongside Guinea, Malawi and Zimbabwe, as they seek a first ever continental title.

As expected the squad include several other English Premier League stars Sadio Mane (Liverpool), goalkeeper Edouard Mendy (Chelsea),

Cheickhou Kouyate (Crystal Palace) and Nampalys Mendy (Leicester City).

Seny Dieng, who plays in the Championship in England for Queens Park Rangers, is named as one of the reserve goalkeepers alongside

first-choice Mendy.
