The midfielder, who sustained a knee problem just before the last international break and missed the home game against Huddersfield Town as a result, went off injured during his country's home clash with the Sundanese in Dakar following a heavy challenge.
He had scored earlier in the 3-0 win, popping up in the opposition box to slide home.
The two countries are due to play each other again in Khartoum on Tuesday.

He may have been taken off as a precaution. It sounds like they were well in charge.

We need him and Tom firing on all cylinders for the Palace match, they've been doing well together the last 3 games.

The pinnacle of International football for this calendar year was the festival that was the World Cup but already weve had two intervals for internationals and its only mid October.

Please, Gana, make a miracle recovery in time for Palace.

I haven't read about Gueye being flown home for treatment so maybe it's not as bad as first thought, but I still won't be happy if he plays again for Senegal this week.
I see Van Dijk was allowed to fly home after the Holland game as a precaution with his back injury. But he played against Man City with this injury and played for Holland against Germany so why would Holland release him from this week's game?. Couldn't be not upsetting a Sky 6 club, could it?

With regard to Van Dijk, maybe Koeman actually has some integrity. At Everton, he was outspoken about Ireland fielding semi-fit Everton players. Perhaps Pep had a quiet word with Ron and he decided to stick to his principles and let the player have some recovery time.

Baningime could also do a very good job – but he is definitely more of a #6 mold – but a very good option.
Gomes next to Gueye fills me with excitement. But Baningime & McCarthy are more than capable replacements.
Unfortunately Schneiderlin & Gomes would never be a good option – a complete lack of pace & energy.
