French-born Adama Diakhaby Open to Committing to Senegal

Monaco forward Adama Diakaby is weighing in on switching his international allegiance to the Teranga Lions of Senegal.
Born in France, the 21-year-old is eligible to play for Le Blues but is more receptive to the idea of donning Senegal’s colors whom he qualifies to feature for through his parents who left the West African nation years ago for Paris.
Capped four times for France’s U-21, the prospect of playing in this year’s Russia World Cup is higher for him with Senegal.
In a latest comment this weekend, the former Rennes man said a call from Teranga Lions’ gaffer Aliou Cisse could change it all but insists he’s in no rush for senior international football.
“Not yet,” he answered when quizzed about whether he’d had a phone call from coach Cisse, before adding, [perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“I know I have a choice to make (between Senegal and France). Is a possibility too (playing for Senegal). But for now, I prefer to concentrate on my club while waiting to see what happens (with the Senegalese Federation).[/perfectpullquote]

Adama faces stiff competition for a place in Senegal’s frontline should he commit to the African country with Sadio Mane, his Monaco teammate Diao Balde Keita, Moussa Sow, M’Baye Babacar Niang and Amiens SC’s Moussa Konate all being established members of the Teranga Lions.
Senegal is pitted against Colombia, Japan, and Poland in Group H of the 2018 Russia World Cup Finals.
