Coach Aliou Cisse was able to count on a number of core players when he took over in 2015, and Idrissa Gueye was among the most indispensable. The midfielder got his first taste of international football in 2011, and he was then part of Senegal's squad for the Men's Olympic Football Tournament London 2012. 

Consistent and reliable, he contested every qualifier on the road to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, just as he did ahead of Brazil 2014. Gueye's combativeness and hard work in midfield make him a crucial factor in Senegal's fortunes, and the tireless warrior's form will go a long way to determining his team's fate in Russia.
