Senegal look up to Cisse

09 October 2014, 14:14

Dakar - Senegal hope Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse can maintain his hot English Premier League form when they host Tunisia in Dakar on Friday.

Cisse bagged a brace in a draw at Swansea City last weekend and his return from a kneecap injury will compensate for the absence of Stoke City striker Mame Diouf, sidelined by a hamstring problem.

The Senegalese are currently among the most impressive African teams with both goals against Egypt created by superb defence-splitting passes from Lokomotiv Moscow's Dame Ndoye.

Cameroon have ignored West Ham United midfielder Alex Song for an 'away' Group D game against Sierra Leone, who will play in Yaounde because of the Ebola epidemic.

Song has completed a three-match ban after elbowing a Croatian in the back during the World Cup.

Cameroon have put a disastrous World Cup campaign behind them with convincing victories over the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Ivory Coast.

The Ivorians reacted to a 4-1 Yaounde drubbing by axing Souleymane Bamba and recalling another long-serving defender, Siaka Tiene, for the clash with DR Congo in Kinshasa.

Top-ranked Algeria play Malawi in Blantyre, Ghana face Guinea in Morocco owing to the Ebola outbreak, and 2012 champions Zambia meet Niger in Niamey.
