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.
