Senegal Team News:
Senegal will be without centre-back Salif Sané for at least the next two games. The 28-year-old suffered a knee injury in Game-1.
Senegal squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations:
Goalkeepers: Abdoulaye Diallo, Alfred Gomis, Edouard Mendy
With Sane out, Cheikhou Kouyate should continue to partner Kalidou Koulibaly at the back.
While Moussa Wagué and Youssouf Sabaly should continue on the wing-back positions.
Sadio Mane was available for selection after missing the opener with a suspension. He started the match but cut a rather frustrating figure due to the lack of quality service and options up front. The Liverpool superstar will definitely start the match.
Ismaïla Sarr was not used in the last game, but the manager Aliou Cisse could tempt to start him on the opposite wing of Sadio Mane, considering how much Senegal struggled for pace and intensity in the last game.
