Saints winger Moussa Djenepo will begin his Africa Cup of Nations campaign with Mali on Wednesday, as The Eagles look to progress from Group F.

Mohamed Magassouba's side come into the tournament as one of the dark horses, having yet to concede in their World Cup qualifying campaign and losing only once on their road to AFCON.

Two legs away from a famous first World Cup qualification, Mali and Djenepo will first focus on a tricky to navigate group stage.

Facing Tunisia, Gambia and Mauritania, The Eagles will be hoping to advance and attempt to go one better than their best-ever AFCON finish in 1972, when they finished runners-up.
