African champions Senegal make their third appearance at the World Cup in 2022. Led by Aliou Cissé, the Lions of Teranga cruised through qualifying. After topping their group, they defeated Egypt on penalties to secure their place at the tournament finals. Having failed to go beyond the group stage in 2018, the West Africans will hope to perform better this time. They play the Netherlands, Ecuador and Qatar in Group A and are odds-on for a top-two finish in the World Cup Betting.
Sadio Mane is likely to be a key figure for Senegal. The Bayern Munich forward is his country’s all-time leading scorer, having netted over 30 goals, including three during qualifying against Togo, Congo and Namibia. But they have many other quality players, including Chelsea duo Édouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly, Idrissa Gueye and Ismaila Sarr.
