Gana Named In Senegal World Cup Squad

Everton midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye has been named in Senegal's 23-man squad for this summer's FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The 28-year-old - who has been capped 48 times by his country - is expected to be a key figure for Aliou Cisse's side as they battle it out with Colombia, Japan and Poland in World Cup Group H.

Gana has regular for Everton this season, playing 37 times and scoring three goals. The dynamic midfielder finished the season as the Premier League's second highest tackler - his 117 challenges surpassed only by Leicester City's Wilfred Ndidi.


Senegal kick off their campaign in Russia against Poland on 19 June.
