Souare Named In Senegal Squad

18 March 2016

Pape Souare has been named in Senegal's squad for their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Niger later this month.

The left-back is one of seven Premier League players named in the 26-man squad, including Sadio Mane, Idrissa Gana Guèye, Cheikhou Kouyaté, Henry Saivet, Mame Biram Diouf and Baye Oumar Niasse.

Senegal currently top their qualification group and will host Niger in Dakar on 26th March before travelling to Niamey three days later in back-to-back games, with two victories enough to book their spot in the next phase of CAF's process.

Teranga Lions have six points after wins over Burundi and Namibia, with only the group winners guaranteed automatic qualification to the tournament in Gabon.

Souare will get the chance to add to his 18 caps, having made his international debut back in 2012.
