Senegal Calling Lamine

Last updated : 02 January 2004 By Kevin Markey

Lamine Sakho is on the verge of joining Salomon Olembe at the African Nations Cup and both could be away for up to six weeks.

Sakho is set to be called up by Senegal for the forthcoming tournament and looks set to make his full international debut.

The player, who was born in Senegal but raised in France, has previously played U-21's football for his adopted country, but the Africans have been impressed with his performances in England.

The left-sided Olembe will join up with the Cameroon squad for the competition.

The duo will depart Elland Road after the Spurs game on January 10th and may not return until late February.
