Three goalkeepers including Edouard Mendy, nine defenders, eight midfielders, and seven attackers made the final squad.
Notable players in the squad include Kalidou Koulibaly, Chiekou Kouyate, and Krepin Diatta.
Others are captain and former African footballer of the year, Sadio Mane, Ismaila Sarr, and Chelsea FC’s Nicolas Jackson.
