Cape Town - Issa Sarr has received his first call-up to the Senegal national team off the back of an impressive run of form for Orlando Pirates.

The former Platinum Stars holding midfielder was brought in as a replacement for Andile Jali in 2014 and has become one of the Buccaneers' most influential players.

Alongside Oupa Manyisa, Sarr has helped Eric Tinkler's side to reach this year's Confederation Cup final, and Senegal's manager, Aliou Cisse, has duly rewarded the 28-year-old with a place in the Teranga Lions squad for the clash with Algeria this weekend.

Sarr, who is one of two non-european based players in the squad, arrived in the PSL in 2013 when Chippa United signed him from AS Pikine.

Senegal face two tough fixtures in the international break, starting with a trip to Egypt on Thursday before locking horns with Algeria next Tuesday.
