The west African team face Morocco first on March 24 before facing Gernot Rohr’s men as they prepare for their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mauritania.

An analysis of the roster revealed that only two players in the shape of RCK goalkeeper Sawadogo Aboubacar and defender Coulibaly Yacouba ply their trade in the domestic championship.

Eight of the invited players are based in Africa, while 17 are Europe-based professionals, including Chelsea loanee Bertrand Traoré and the influential FC Krasnodar midfielder Charles Kabore and veteran striker Aristide Bance are all in the squad.
