French coach Didier Six has called up Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita for upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mali and Namibia.
An injury forced him to miss their friendly internationals against Comoros and Chile in October. The Guinea international has endured a stop-start beginning to his Liverpool career since joining in the summer of 2018, managing just 37 appearances so far with injuries hampering his progress.
The 24-year old is among 23 players selected by coach Didier Six for the Syli Nationale’s upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mali and Namibia.
Guinea will come up against Mali in Bamako next Thursday. Three days later they host Namibia in the capital Conakry.
