Senegal-Africa-Cup-Nations-Football-Goal-GhanaNew senegal head coach Aliou Cisse has named  a very strong and attacking minded set of players to face the black stars of Ghana this week.

New Lions of Teranga coach Aliou Cisse handed call-ups to 28 players to represent the nation during this weekend when they met with the black stars of ghana at the Stade Oceane in Le Havre on Saturday evening.

Senegal recorded a 2-1 victory in Mongomo to kick-off Group C at the just ended AFCON 2015, but it was ultimately the Black Stars who topped the pool and who went on to reach the final.

As was the case ahead of the Cup of Nations, Senegal’s attacking threat is notable. The squad contains the likes of Mame Biram Diouf, Dame Ndoye, Moussa Sow and Sadio Mane.

Demba Ba, who fell out with Giresse, has been recalled, but there is no place for attacking pair Papiss Demba Cisse or Diafra Sakho.
