Senegal team news for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations:
Senegal – Possible INs and OUTs of this game:
Alfred Gomis will continue in his role as the team’s goalie in the absence of Edouard Mendy. The S.P.A.L. shot-stopper won the man of the match award for his outstanding display against Tunisia in the semi-final.
Salif Sane is the likeliest player to fill the big boots of Koulibaly at the back. He hasn’t featured since suffering the injury on the opening game of the tournament.
Manager Alou Cisse could name an unchanged XI from the semi-finals. However, he will definitely look at his options to partner Sadio Mane on the wide positions. One one of Ismaila Sarr, Keita Balde and Krepin Diatta will start the game with M’Baye Niang starting the game as a striker.
Senegal Probable XI:
Alfred Gomis (GK), Youssouf Sabaly, Salif Sane, Cheikhou Kouyate, Lamine Gassama, Badou Ndiaye, Henri Saivet, Ismaila Sarr, Idrissa Gueye, Sadio Mane, M’Baye Niang
Algeria Team News:
