New Senegal coach Aliou Cisse has included in-form Besiktas striker Demba Ba his 23-man squad to face Ghana and Ligue 2 side Le Havre next week.

Ba fell out with former coach Alain Giresse and that cost him a place his Senegal’s squad for the Nations Cup.

The ex-international has handed a debut call-ups to Le Havre duo goalkeeper Abdoulaye Diallo, and defender Zargo Touré.

But there is no room for West Ham United star Diafra Sakho, who controversially missed the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations claiming he was injured.

The Lions of Teranga face Ghana on 28 March at the Stade Oceane du Le Havre before playing Le Havre three days later.

Senegal squad:
Goalkeepers: Bouna Coundoul, Lys Gomis, Papa Camara, Abdoulaye Diallo

Defenders: Zargo Touré, Lamine Gassama, Papy Mison Djilobodji, Lamine Sane, Cheikh Mbengue Boukary Drame, Pape Ndiaye Souare, Ibrahima Mbaye, Diawandou Diagne Serigne Modou Kara Mbodji

Midfielders: Cheikhou Kouyaté, Pape Diop Quli, Idrissa Gana Gueye, Stéphane Badji, Alfred Ndiaye, Salif Sane

Forwards: Demba Ba, Sadio Mane, Babacar Khouma, Mame Biram Diouf, Moussa Sow, Dame Ndoye, Cheikh Ndoye, Moussa Konaté
