Senegal vs Zimbabwe LIVE: Stream, TV channel, team news for CAN 2022 group match
Hello from Cameroon
Welcome to our live coverage of the Africa Cup of Nations clash between Senegal and Zimbabwe at Kouekong Stadium.
The two African countries are kicking off Group B but they will not be without absences in Bafoussam, because they have not been spared by COVID-19.
Senegalese coach Aliou Cissé has seen nine of his players test positive for the coronavirus, two of whom are Chelsea goalkeepers Alfred Gomis and Edouard Mendy.
That leaves Queens Park Rangers scorer Seny Dieng as the only player available to stand between the sticks.
Teranga Lions captain and Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly has also tested positive, as have Famara Diedhiou, Saliou Ciss, Bamba Dieng, Mame Baba Thiam, Pope Matar Sarr and Nampalys Mendy of Leicester.
However, Cissé will still be able to count on Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane, Paris Saint-Germain star Idrissa Gueye, Crystal Palace ace Cheikhou Kouyate, Watford striker Ismaila Sarr and much-loved Olympiacos Pape defender. Abu Cisse.
Zimbabwe interim boss Norman Mapeza meanwhile saw all of his players avoid the disease, but Bournemouth ace Jordan Zemura was unable to connect with the squad due to COVID protocols.
Kundai Benyu is also dubious as he did not participate in training due to a stomach ailment, but Mapeza could call on Luton striker Admiral Muskwe.
