According to french newspaper France Football, The Lions of Senegal are trying to enrol 23 year-old striker Moussa Sow from Stade Rennais for their next friendly in Blois, against the Democratic Republic of Congo, as he holds both the French and Senegalese nationalities.
Already capped multiple times with the U-19 and U-21 in France, the Mantes-La-Jolie native is reportedly very eager to play for the Teranga Lions in the future and the Senegalese FA (Federation Senegalaise de Football) has received an authorisation from the FIFA to pick-up the youngster for their August 12th game.
Senegal, eliminated from both the African Cup of Nations in Angola and the World Cup in South Africa is trying to rebuild a very young team for the 2012 ACN in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea as well as the London Olympics.
In the past few months, the Senegalese FA has been trying to contact Cheickh Mbengue, Mickael Tavares, Issiar Dia and the Faty brothers with various successes.
If the FSF needs to be commanded for their nezly found eagerness to go out and find talent where it is, one thing we should have learned from the latest African Campionship of Nations is that ho;egrown talent can be as good as forign one. Let’s not forget how good the players in Senegal have become.

El Hadji Diouf is very entertaining; We knew that. That’s pretty much all the guy has left, that and the memories of a time when his name and playing skills actually meant something. It’s completely baffling to see that this once great player – that showed even greater promise – celebrated his ... [read more]
Stoke City is fastly becoming some kind of Senegalese Eldorado. With already four Senegalese players in the roster (Ibrahima Sonko, Salif Diao, Abdoulaye Diagne Faye and Amdy Faye) and defender Lamine Diatta on trial as we speak, the Potters could add a fifth or sixth Lion to their roster in fast paced ...

After having received a four-month suspension by FIFA, Moustapha Bayal Sall is back. The Gorée youth team legend signed two contracts in 2006 with both french side Saint-Etienne and Norwegians IK Start and chose the prior. The scandinavians sued and rightfully won their case.
Training without the possibility to play since August, Bayal ... [read more]
So last friday in Blida, Algeria beat us 3-2 and took the lead of Group 6. After a first half where we completely dominated the game, we could have, should have scored at least twice but the facts remain simple: Our strikers were not up to par!
After the first half, we went ... [read more]
After selecting 22 players for the 5th and 6th match-days of these World Cup qualifiers, Lamine Ndiaye had to face a problem, striker Mbaye Leye was injured during a game and the national coach decided to call Hoffenheim’s Demba Ba but had to face two problems:

Love Football, Hate Football is a site dedicated to taking a currrent club crest and turning out a concept crest in its place. And the site is simply phenomenal. Not only are the designs solid and varied - you won't be a fan of every single one (the transformation of ...
If there's a 007 for a football coach, it's ceertainly not Jurgen Klopp. He's too goofy and, well, he's not a pretty boy. As far as dress sense goes, perhaps Andre Villas-Boas. The problem is football coaches are often too animated to be the supercool James Bond. Jupp Heynckes could ...
You knew it was happening: there's an animal involved in the Champions League Final. After Paul the 'Pus caused a mild ruckus in Germany in particular, it should come as no surprise that Wembley's civil war will feature another majestic creature. Next up for its 15 minutes is Nelly the ...
While the big news of the day is that Chelsea is free to go after a fifty year old child manager of the utmost ability, it's backup keeper Ross Turnbull's son Josh who is stealing the show. After the final match there were some festivities on the pitch. Josh didn't ...
The Munich Philharmonic penned this little aria for their boys heading to England for the grandest match of the year on Saturday. Bounding around Google has surfaced nothing in the way of an English translation for the lyrics, but it's worth it simply to watch someone work 'Heynckes' into a ...
During this evening's Copa del Rey final, won by Atletico Madrid in extra time at the Bernabeu (big win, that one), Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo were both sent off. The latter was unjustified, though Cristiano probably could've been sent off for kicking Juanfran off the ball earlier, and there's ...
This might be better than the Champions League final itself. Heineken decided to run a gag where if a guy could get his girl to go along with buying stadium seats for $1899, he would win tickets to the final in London. One man actually rose above the odds - ...
The people who whip up these fancy second-tier finals (UEFA. They're called UEFA.) concocted a nice little PR thingamajig by pairing one fan from Benfica and one fan from Chelsea with a top notch freestyler in a race through Amsterdam to the Arena. They would hope to determine a winner ...
