Qualification for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations continues as Senegal host Guinea-Bissau in Group I on Wednesday (4pm UK time).
Senegal lead Group I after two games, having secured wins over Congo and Eswatini, but both of those victories came last November. Aliou Cisse’s side have played just once since then, losing 3-1 to Morocco in a friendly last month. But back in competitive action, Senegal will fancy their chances against Guinea-Bissau.
Like Senegal, Guinea-Bissau have faced both Congo and Eswatini, but they lost 3-0 to the former in their last game, and face an uphill battle to qualify for the tournament. Only the top two of the group will qualify, and with Guinea-Bissau currently third ahead of this double-header, only a win will keep their hopes alive.

Player to watch: Edouard Mendy (Senegal)
The first name many fans will be drawn to when thinking about the Senegal national team is Sadio Mane. Other big stars of the nation include Kalidou Koulibaly and Idrissa Gueye but one whose profile is on the rise is Edouard Mendy.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper has been at the heart of Chelsea’s defensive improvements so far this season, conceding just two goals in eight games across all competitions for the Blues since his move from Rennes. Replacing Kepa Arrizabalaga in the Chelsea goal, Mendy has already been compared to Petr Cech, who also joined the Blues from Rennes in 2004, particularly following his three-game start to life in the Premier League without conceding. Mendy has saved six of the seven shots on target he has faced in the Premier League so far, with his 85.71 save percentage the best in the division,
He has a similar record for Senegal, conceding just twice in his seven appearances since his first call up in November 2018. While Mane will be expected to lead in attack, particularly with qualifying top scorer Famara Diedhiou absent, Mendy provides solidity at the back.
