the 27 players for CAN 2021, led by Sadio Mané
Published on :
Aliou Cissé, the coach of the Senegal team, has unveiled a list of 27 players called up to play the next African Cup of Nations, scheduled from January 9 to February 6, 2022 in Cameroon. All the Senegalese stars will be at CAN 2021, led by Sadio Mané.
From December 27, the Senegal team will be hard at work to achieve what it has never done: win the African Cup of Nations. The Senegalese, who intend to triumph in CAN 2021 (January 9-February 6, 2022), will be able to count on a solid workforce, ranging from Édouard Mendy in the cage to Sadio Mané in attack, via Kalidou Koulibaly in defense and Idrissa Gana Gueye in midfield.
Aliou Cissé will be spoiled for choice in Cameroon. He also decided to retain 27 players for this final phase. This December 24, 2021, he unveiled his list of selected. A list without much surprise, even if the presence of Ismaïla Sarr, still recovering from an injury, may greatly displease her club, Watford (England). The same with Naples for a Koulibaly in the recovery phase, and whose coach Luciano Spalletti, had described the CAN as » invisible monster « .
Aliou Cissé will also have to juggle with the recriminations of European clubs where the Lions of Téranga evolve massively. Will Sadio Mané stay with Liverpool until January 2? That day, the Reds will face Chelsea in a crucial match in the Premier League.
