Defender of the French football club “Monaco” and the national team of Senegal Ismail Jacobs will miss the 2022 World Cup in Qatar due to administrative issues.
The 23-year-old footballer played for the German national team at the youth level, but before the World Cup he decided to change his citizenship and represent the country where his father was born. In September, he played for the national team in two friendly matches.
However, the legal procedure for changing citizenship was delayed, which is why the football player will have to miss the tournament in Qatar. Anderlecht’s 20-year-old Moussa Ndiaye will be called up to replace him.
Senegal will play its first match at the World Cup tomorrow, November 21, against the Netherlands. Start at 18:00. In addition to the Netherlands, Qatar and Ecuador are also in the group with Senegal.
