Senegal World Cup Squad 2018: Players to Watch
In this squad, the players to watch are sure to be Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, Everton’s Idrissa Gueye and Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly. All three have performed excellently for their clubs this season and for Senegal to have a chance of advancing out of the group stages, they’ll have to do the same in Russia.
Much to some fans’ surprise, Crystal Palace defender Pape Souare, Everton striker Oumar Niasse and Cardiff City star Armand Traore were snubbed.
