Soccer 360 - - Inside -

In­ter winger Keita Balde Diao was called up to the Sene­gal squad for a 2019 African Cup of Na­tions qual­i­fier but was un­able to fea­ture be­cause of an em­bar­rass­ing mis­take. The Sene­gal FA sent all the re­quired in­for­ma­tion to the wrong In­ter email ad­dress and be­cause the club didn’t have any no­tice of the call-up, the Ner­az­zurri re­fused to let him join up with the na­tional side. The pres­i­dent of the Sene­galese FA ad­mit­ted to the er­ror him­self, is­su­ing a state­ment ex­plain­ing why Keita would not be able to fea­ture.
