Coach: Alain Giresse
Captain: Bouna Coundoul
Nickname: Lions of Teranga
Best AFCON finish: Runners-up (2002)
AFCON 2013 finish: Did not qualify
Senegal have had a rather mixed bag of results at the Africa Cup of Nations through the years.
The Lions of Teranga only participated in four tournaments between 1965 and 1990, dropping out at the 1sr round twice and finishing fourth twice.
Their best finish came in the 2002 edition of AFCON, where they lost out to Cameroon 4-2 on penalties after the final ended goalless after extra time.
Senegal's last appearance at the Africa Cup of Nations was in 2012 where they finished bottom of Group A having lost all of their games.
Senegal have the potential to be a real threat at the tournament with a whole host of top-level striking talent at their disposal, so much so, that Demba Ba was left out of the squad.
Mame Biram Diouf, Sadio Mane and Papiss Cisse have all been in impressive form in the Premier League, while Moussa Sow and Dame N'Doye are also experienced campaigners.
Even the young Moussa Konate, who replaced the injured Diafra Sakho in the squad, is a danger with five goals in eight appearances for his country.
Veteran stopper Bouna Coundoul once again skippers the side, while the likes of Lamine Sane, Cheikhou Kouyate and Idrissa Gueye will be relied upon in defence and midfield.
Senegal are also the only team at the tournament whose squad consists of all European-based players.
