Senegal to have Sarr for AFCON

Watford midfielder Ismaila Sarr could yet be able to play for Senegal in the Africa Cup of Nations finals after a ‘positive development’ in medical checkups on his injured knee, the Senegal Football Federation said on Wednesday.

Sarr, injured in a Premier League match against Manchester United in November, was reluctantly released by Watford after being called up by his country for the tournament in Cameroon.

Watford had released Sarr to travel to Dakar only after Senegal threatened to ask for FIFA’s intervention. – AFP
