Diafra Sakho has been recalled into the Senegal squad for a crucial World Cup qualifier in the Cape Verde Islands.
Aliou Cisse’s has named Sakho in his 26-man selection for the tie and the hammers striker will be hoping to pick up his first international cap since 2015.
Senegal are in third place in the African qualifying Group D, a point behind leaders Burkina Faso and second-place Cape Verde Islands.
Only the group winners get to the finals so Senegal need a repeat of the 2-0 victory they achieved over Cape Verde in the reverse fixture eleven months ago.
Senegal have a game in-hand on their rivals as their 2-1 defeat in South Africa has been ordered to be replayed after the referee was found guilty of ‘match manipulation’. They complete their qualifying campaign by hosting South Africa on 6 November.
Sakho, is joined in the squad by fellow Hammer Cheikhou Kouyate.
