Senegal coach calls in six new faces for Brazil friendly

Senegal head coach Aliou Cisse has called in six new faces in his squad ahead of this month's friendly against Brazil.

The 2019 losing finalists have recalled Europe-based sextet of Pape Djibril Diaw, Racine Coly, Sidy Sarr, Mamadou Loum Ndiaye, Famara Diédhiou and Habib Diallo for the first-ever clash between both nations on 10 October.

The six comes in for Youssouf Sabaly, Moussa Konaté, Pape Abou Cissé, Henri Saivet, Alfred Ndiaye and Mbaye Diagne who were all in for the AFCON tournament. It will be the Teranga Lions' first game since losing the Nations Cup final to Algeria in Egypt.

The game is a build-up match for the continent's top-ranked side as they prepare for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign beginning in November. Senegal will feature in Group I alongside Congo Brazzaville, Guinea-Bissau, and eSwatini.
