Good morning from Cameroon
Welcome to our live coverage of the Africa Cup of Nations clash between Senegal and Zimbabwe at Kouekong Stadium.
Two African countries start in Group B but they will not be absent from Bafoussam, as they have not been spared by COVID-19.
Senegal manager Aliou Cisse has seen nine of his players test positive for coronavirus, two of which are Chelsea goalkeepers Alfred Gomis and Edouard Mendy.
That made Queens Park Rangers saver Seny Dieng the only player able to stand between the clubs.
The Lions of Teranga captain and Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly also tested positive as did Leicester’s Famara Diedhiou, Saliou Ciss, Bamba Dieng, Mame Baba Thiam, Pape Matar Sarr and Leicester’s Nampalys Mendy.
However, Cisse can still rely on Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane, Paris Saint-Germain star Idrissa Gueye, Crystal Palace goalkeeper Cheikhou Kouyate, Watford forward Ismaila Sarr and highly-rated Olympiacos defender Pape Abou Cisse.
On the other hand, Zimbabwe’s caretaker manager Norman Mapeza has seen all of his players recover from illness but Bournemouth goalkeeper Jordan Zemura has been unable to link up with the team due to COVID-related protocols.
Kundai Benyu is also under suspicion as he doesn’t attend training due to a stomach illness, but Mapeza can call upon Luton’s predecessor Admiral Muskwe
