Senegal international goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye has suffered a double leg break after colliding with his teammate during a Champions League clash for club side Horoya AC against Wydad Casablanca and will miss this summer's the African Nations Cup.

Senegal coach Aliou Cisse is targeting title success at next year's Africa Cup of Nations and believes that his side will be a match for any of the continent's contenders in Cameroon.

By the time next year's showpiece rolls around, it will have been 17 years since the Teranga Lions last featured in the final of Africa's showpiece - when they were defeated on penalties by Cameroon in Bamako - but Cisse is confident that mental preparation could see his side go far in 2019.

2002 was Senegal's best...
