On November 21, Senegal will face the Netherlands to open their World Cup campaign. They will also compete in Group A against the hosts Qatar and Ecuador.

Following the game, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann stated in a press conference: “He took a blow to his tibial plateau. It’s a painful spot. He’ll have to have an X-ray to see what’s happened.”

At a news conference in Dakar on Friday, Senegal coach Aliou Cisse announced his 26-man roster, which featured the team’s talisman.

Senegal’s record goal scorer and former Liverpool striker scored the game-winning penalty when his nation defeated Egypt to win the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.
