FIFA World Cup 2022 Senegal Players, Squad

In 2022, the Senegalese national football team will make its third appearance at the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Senegal national team will be playing against the Netherlands in the opening match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha on November 21, 2022. In the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Senegal will be competing in Group A with Ecuador, the Netherlands, and the host nation of Qatar.

It is expected that Senegal’s World Cup 2022 squad will be announced in October or November, following their victory over Egypt in the qualification play-offs last month, which solidified their place at the tournament as the reigning African champions.

There is no doubt that Senegal will be one of the dark horses at the Qatar World Cup 2022. There is a strong squad to call upon for the team as well as a well-drilled squad under the supervision of Aliou Cisse, who has been in charge of the team since 2015.

How many players are Senegal allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?

For the first time at a major tournament, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while last year’s Copa America allowed managers to bring squads of 28 players, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A 26-player squad has now been announced for the Qatar World Cup, which is an increase from the usual 23-man squads that have been used in the past.

When will the final Senegal Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?

Due to the extreme heat in Qatar during the middle of the year, the 2022 World Cup takes place in November and December rather than June and July.

A few weeks after the end of the European season, the World Cup usually takes place a few weeks after that. This time, it is taking place right in the middle of all of it. In addition to Senegal, all of the other competing nations must name their squads by October 20. This is exactly days before the opening game of the tournament, which will be played between Senegal and the Netherlands.

Who will make the final Senegal Fifa World Cup 2022 squad?

It is no secret that Sadio Mane is Senegal’s talisman and he will be the first name on Aliou Cisse’s 2022 squad list, as he is his talisman. There is also a possibility that Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli and Edouard Mendy from Chelsea will also travel to the Middle East, provided they are in good shape.

Despite not starting as often for PSG as he would have liked this season, Senegal’s vice-captain is an important player for his country. Cheikhou Kouyate, a Crystal Palace midfielder with 81 caps to his name, will provide additional experience, as he has won more than 80 caps for the national team.

The amount accumulated by Ismaila Sarr at the age of 24 is more than half of that amount. As a result, Sarr may well be seeking a transfer this summer if the Hornets are relegated from the Premier League, as he is determined to prepare for Qatar by playing at the highest level possible during the summer.
