Senegal Announce Squad For Brazil Clash, Stars Miss Out

Ahead of Senegal's first ever senior match against five-time world champions Brazil, manager Aliou Cisse has announced the 23-man squad that will take on the Selecao next week. A few stars were recalled, while a few others missed out.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see five star players who were not called up to Senegal's latest squad.

The African nation will take on the Brazilians on 10 October in an international friendly, and it will be their first encounter against the 2019 Copa America winners.

Senegal will take Brazil on at the Singapore National Stadium next week, with manager Cisse ringing the changes for the clash.

Henri Saivet, who was in the Lions of Teranga's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations side earlier this year, was left out of the squad, having not played a single match for Newcastle United so far this season. Bordeaux right-back Youssouf Sabaly also misses out.

Reports: Messi Humiliated Pep At Barca

Senegal have not played since the Afcon final in Egypt, and could use this clash against Brazil to prepare for their 2021 Afcon qualifiers against Congo Brazzaville and Eswatini next month.

Do you think Senegal can give Brazil a run for their money next week? Let us know in the comments section below.
