Sakh back for another crack

Filed: Wednesday, 27th September 2017
By: Staff Writer

Diafra Sakho is set to make his first appearance at international level since 2015 after being named in the latest Senegal squad.

The 27-year-old West Ham forward missed the vast majority of last season, officially as a result of injury. However he has been involved in almost every one of United's games thus far this season - leading to a recall today from Les Lions boss Aliou Cissť.

Despite failing to play a full 90 minutes in any of his seven appearances thus far, Sakho has scored twice already this season - against Cheltenham and Bolton Wanderers in the Carabao Cup.

He has featured six times for Senegal previously and will be joined in the squad by fellow Hammer Cheikhou Kouyate, who will be hoping to make his 39th appearance at full international level when they tackle Cape Verde on 7 October.
