Senegal can logically win AFCON2021, thanks in particular to its golden generation, brought among others Sadio Mané, from Liverpool, Koulibaly from Naples, Bouna Sarr from Bayern Munich or Edouard Mendy from Chelsea. Among the 27 players summoned by Aliou Cissé, there are many Ligue 1 players, such as Parisians Idrissa Gueye, Abdou Diallo, or even Rennais, Alfred Gomis.

We also note the summons of two talented young people, who play for Olympique de Marseille: Bamba Dieng (21) and Pape Gueye (22). According to Patrick Juillard, a sports journalist “Aliou Cissé has improved his workforce, especially on the sides, with the arrival of Bouna Sarr (Bayern Munich), Abdou Diallo (PSG) and Fodé Ballo-Touré (AC Milan)”. “The workforce is better than in 2019”, but it will be necessary “that the teammates of Sadio Mané take a step forward mentally”.
