Aliou Cissé, the coach of the Senegal team, will reveal the list of players summoned for the next meeting in June. According to the indiscretions of the local press, the technician will recall a Globalist. We take stock.
As indicated by the Senegalese Football Federation (FSF), Aliou Cissé will announce his list during the traditional press conference on Friday June 2 from 10 a.m. local time. The 47-year-old coach has already sent his list to the FSF. It would be a group of 25 to 26 players, which should inevitably include executives like Sadio Mané (Bayern Munich) or Idrissa Gana Gueye (Everton).
Without Boulaye Dia… or Bamba Dieng?
An ex-Globalist is also expected to return to the squad. This is the center-forward of Villarreal, Nicolas Jackson (22 years old). The native of Banjul had not appeared with the Lions since November 21, 2022 and the defeat against the Netherlands in the World Cup (0-2). The fault in particular of repeated injuries. Since then, the 1.88m right-hander has been in full swing with the Yellow Submarine, finding the net 8 times and offering 2 assists in his last six La Liga appearances. A revival of form which should again open the door to the national team with which he has only one cape.

This comeback comes as the offensive sector looks diminished. Author of 16 goals in Serie A with Salernitana this season, Boulaye Dia has just had knee surgery and his package has already been recorded. Just like probably that of Bamba Dieng (FC Lorient). The Hake striker who suffers from a
ankle injury was declared unfit by Lorient coach Régis Le Bris. “He needs care. He’s probably unavailable until the end of the season.”said the technician to the press on May 26.
Already qualified for the final phase, Senegal will face Benin in Cotonou on June 17, on the occasion of the 5e
day of the qualifiers for CAN 2023 and will move on to revealing the Brazil, during a friendly match on June 20 in Lisbon (Portugal). The gathering of Lions starts on June 7 in Dakar, according to the same sources.
