Kalou to miss Côte d'Ivoire qualifier

Côte d'Ivoire forward Salomon Kalou is injured and will miss his country's 2013 CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Senegal on 13 October.

Lille's new 27-year-old recruit was among the scorers in Les Elephants' 4-2 first-leg win in Abidjan.

Sabri Lamouchi's 23-man squad, which was announced on Friday, is spearheaded by Didier Drogba, now playing for Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote makes his return, while 19-year-old Norwegian-based goalkeeper Mande Sayouba has earned his first call-up.

One name missing from the list, however, is winger Kader Keita, currently without a club, who played in last month's first leg.
