Senegal’s Diafra Sakho will miss the 2015 AFCON after picking up an injury while playing for West Ham in their 1-1 draw with West Brom on the 1st of January.

His absence will be a blow to Senegal coach Alain Giresse  who looks set to miss Sadio Mane also due to injury.

Sakho will be replaced by Moussa Konate who plays for FC Sion in Switzerland.

Meanwhile, the Senegalese team has left Dakar for Morocco where they will play against Gabon and Guinea in two pre-tournament friendlies.

Senegal are in Group C with Ghana, Algeria and South Africa.
