Senegal Team News:

Senegal must cope without their talisman Kalidou Koulibaly at the back. The Napoli center-back is suspended for the final due to the accumulation of yellow cards.

In addition, goalkeeper Edouard Mendy who suffered a fractured hand in the 2nd game of the tournament remains out as well.


Senegal team news for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations:

  • Goalkeepers: Abdoulaye Diallo, Alfred Gomis, Edouard Mendy
  • Defenders: Saliou Ciss, Pape Abdou Cisse, Lamine Gassama, Kalidou Koulibaly, Cheikhou Kouyate, Youssouf Sabaly, Salif Sane, Moussa Wague
  • Midfielders: Keprin Diatta, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Alfred Ndiaye, Badou Ndiaye, Henri Saivet
  • Forwards: Keita Balde, Mbaye Diagne, Moussa Konate, Sadio Mane, Mbaye Niang, Ismaila Sarr, Sada Thioub

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:

  • Youcef Atal will be missing the final game due to the injury he suffered against Ivory Coast in the quarterfinal.
  • Algeria have no other injury problems to contend with before the all-important final.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Algeria head-coach Djamel Belmadi may be tempted to start the final with the same playing 11 that got the better of Nigeria in the semi-finals.

Algeria Probable XI:

Rais M’Bolhi (GK), Mehdi Zeffane, Aissa Mandi, Djamel Benlamri, Ramy Bensebaini, Adlene Guedioura, Sofiane Feghouli, Ismael Bennacer, Riyad Mahrez, Youcef Belaili, Baghdad Bounedjah
