AFCON 2021: Senegalese players Sarr, Mendy, Thiam test positive for COVID-19

The Senegalese Football Federation has announced that three players from their 28-man squad tested positive for Covid-19.

According to the Senegalese FA, it followed a PCR Test on the players after the team returned from the handing over of the National flag by the Senegal President. The three players are Pope Matar SARR, Nampalys MENDY and Mame Bamba THIAM. Six members of the management also tested positive.

The situation naturally led to the postponement of the departure of the Teranga Lions on Wednesday.
