LIVE: Senegal v Algeria | AFRICA CUP OF NATIONS 2017
AFRICA CUP OF NATIONS – GROUP B
Match K.O. @ 21:00 Cairo Local Time
Venue: Stade de Franceville
Senegal coach Aliou Cisse doesn’t have any injury concerns but said he is likely to make changes against Algeria, given his side have already won Group B and qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals.
Cisse is eager to give other members of his 23-man squad a taste of the tournament in Gabon.
Algeria do have injuries, which have ruled out goalkeepers Rais M’bohli and Hilal Soundani, and they also have fitness doubts over defender Rami Bensebaini.
But midfielder Yacine Brahimi, striker Islam Simani and defender Mohamed Meftah should all be available despite having been restricted to only light training sessions.
The Desert Foxes will be desperate to have the likes of Brahim and Slimani in their team as they seek the victory that would keep alive their hopes of qualification.
