The team will be present in group A alongside the host Qatar. Information about the 2022 world cup and the squad details for Senegal have been revealed. After a remarkable qualifying round, Senegal hopes to perform well at the mega tournament.
As the 2022 world cup marks their third appearance, the team’s record in world cup has not been great. The team has been performing well in recent years. The team is motivated to win the trophy.
Due to extreme heat in Qatar, the 2022 World Cup will be held in November and December instead of June and July.
Senegal Squad for FIFA WC 2022
The World Cup usually takes place several weeks after the European season ends. It is happening right in the middle of the European season this time. All other countries competing in the tournament must also name their teams by October 20. This is just days before the opening match, which will feature Senegal & the Netherlands.
Senegal’s talisman Sadio Mane will be Aliou Cisse’s first choice on the squad list for 2022 World Cup. If they are both fit, Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy also will be flying to the Middle East.
Although Idrissa Gueye may not have started as many games for PSG this season as he would like, the vice-captain of Senegal is a key player for his country. Cheikhou Kouyate (Crystal Palace midfielder) will provide additional experience. He has won 81 senior caps.
At 24 years old, Ismaila Sarr had earned more than half of that sum. If the Hornets lose the Premier League, the Watford forward could be interested in a transfer. Sarr is determined to play at the best level possible for Qatar.
