Senegal XI predicted to play their opening World Cup game against the Netherlands

how the Teranga Lions might line up against the Dutch at the Al Thumama Stadium

Senegal begin their World Cup campaign against the Netherlands on Monday, hoping for a positive result that will put them on course to qualifying for the last 16.

Aliou Cisse will, however, have to do it without talisman Sadio Mane who is out of the tournament due to an injury, leaving some big shoes to fill up front.

Cisse is keeping his cards close to his chest but has relatively played with a settled starting XI and in the absence of Mane, Watford winger Ismaila Sarr could start on the left wing.

Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy
Right-back: Youssouf Sabaly
Centre-back: Kalidou Koulibaly
Centre-back: Pape Abou Cisse
Left-back: Fode Ballo-Toure
Central midfielder: Idrissa Gueye
Central midfielder: Cheikhou Kouyate
Attacking midfielder: Nampalys Mendy
Left wing: Ismaila Sarr
Striker: Boulaye Dia
Right wing: Krepin Diatta
