Cisse Now Free To Take Fight To Cheick Tiote

8 years ago

Papiss Cisse missed Senegal’s World Cup qualifier against Uganda in Marrakesh after accumulating yellow cards and a ban.

However, he is back for the big one, a two legged tie against Cheick Tiote’s Ivory Coast which will decide who will play in the finals next summer in Brazil.

The first leg takes place in Abidjan on October 12th and Cisse has been named in the 23 man squad

On the other hand, Demba Ba’s situation appears to go from bad to worse. Having spent yet another night on the bench as Chelsea won against Steaua in the Champions League on Tuesday, Ba has again been ignored for international duty and hasn’t played for Senegal since March.

The second leg will be played in Casablanca (Morocco) as Senegal continue to be banned from playing on home turf.
