This is the main lesson from the list unveiled Tuesday by Alain Giresse. Demba Ba absent from the Senegalese team since June 2013 is back to face Mali in a friendly on March 5th in Paris. If the status of replacement of the Chelsea player has not changed, one wonders on what criteria the French technician recalls him.
Apart from Ba, the confirmation of the first convocation already announced of the young goalkeeper Lys Gomis of Torino (Italy).
It is in fact a squad almost identical to the one removed by Côte d’ Ivoire in the FIFA World Cup 2014 playoffs that will face the Eagles at Saint- Leu la Forêt , near Paris.
