FIFA World Cup 2022: Senegal Squad, Captain, Coach, Star Players, Possible Line-Up

Senegal squad for FIFA 2022 and other information.

Senegal qualified for the FIFA World Cup for the first time in 2002, and they quickly made an impact by defeating the host nation France to advance to the round of 16.

Following their elimination to Mohamed Salah’s Egypt in the qualifiers, they were unable to qualify for the World Cup again until 2018, but are now set to make their third appearance at the tournament.

Senegal boasts a stable, skilled core, with as many as six of their starting lineup potentially having previous World Cup experience in Russia 2018.

After winning the first-ever Africa Cup of Nations in February, Sadio Mane, who is a Ballon d’Or contender, will be the center of attention. Still, their major weapon is a shared desire to make history once more. The 2002 quarterfinalists have an account of pulling off surprises.

Sadio Mane, who recently injured himself while playing for club team Bayern Munich have pulled out of the World Cup diminishing Senegal’s hopes. They are the reigning AFCON champion and they won’t be let down by mere that.

Senegal World Cup 2022 Star Players

 1. Idrissa Gueye

In 2011, Idrissa Gueye made his Senegal debut. He participated in one game for the Senegalese team at the 2012 Summer Olympics. At four Africa Cup of Nations competitions and the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he represented Senegal. He assisted his nation in winning the 2022 competition final after they lost the 2019 competition final.

Gueye is a tenacious midfielder who excels at winning the ball, pressing defenders, and intercepting passes. He completed the most tackles in the Premier League in 2016–17.

 2. Kalidou Koulibaly

We know Koulibaly for his aerial prowess, anticipation, positioning, tackling, character, technique, and passing ability as a defender. He is a large, combative, swift, big, and strong yet stylish player.

He has also received praise from analysts for his overall consistency as a player and his capacity for making interceptions, but they have also targeted him for committing too many fouls.

They included him in Senegal’s 23-man roster for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia in May of that year. They eliminated Senegal in the group stage of the competition after becoming the first team in FIFA World Cup history to be eliminated due to fair play tiebreaker rules, and Koulibaly participated in all three games.

Senegal World Cup 2022 Possible Lineup
