Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has been included in Senegal's 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup.

The 26-year-old has enjoyed a fruitful season at club level, scoring 19 goals and claiming nine assists en route to fourth place in the Premier League table and the Champions League final.

Mane is joined in the Senegal contingent by fellow England-based players Idrissa Gueye, Cheikhou Kouyate, Alfred N'Diaye, Badou Ndiaye, Cheikh N'Doye and Mame Biram Diouf.

Crystal Palace defender Pape Souare, however, is not included in Aliou Cisse's squad.

The 27-year-old broke his thighbone and jaw in a car crash on London's M4 in 2016 and was sidelined for over a year.

Although Souare returned to the Senegal squad in March, he only made only four substitute appearances for Palace during the 2017-18 season.

Senegal are in Group H of the 2018 World Cup alongside Colombia, Japan and Poland.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Abdoulaye Diallo (Stade Rennes), Alfred Gomis (SPAL), Khadim Ndiaye (Horoya)

Defenders: Lamine Gassama (Alanyaspor), Saliou Ciss (Valenciennes), Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli), Kara Mbodii (Anderlecht), Youssouf Sabaly (Bordeaux), Salif Sane (Hannover 96), Moussa Wague (Eupen)

Midfielders: Idrissa Gueye (Everton), Cheikhou Kouyate (West Ham United), Alfred N'Diaye (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Badou Ndiaye (Stoke City), Cheikh N'Doye (Birmingham City), Ismaila Sarr (Stade Rennes)

Forwards: Keita Balde (Monaco), Mame Biram Diouf (Stoke City), Moussa Konate (Amiens), Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Mbaye Niang (Torino), Diafra Sakho (Stade Rennes), Moussa Sow (Bursaspor)
