The Teranga Lions attacking duo will not be in action against the Cranes in Marrakech

Newcastle United forward Papiss Cisse will not be participating in Senegal's decisive clash against Uganda in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers on September 7, following his suspension.

Chelsea's Demba Ba was dropped because of unconvincing form at club level, according to the Teranga Lions coach Alain Giresse, who published his 23-man roster on Tuesday in Dakar.

Senegal are leading Group J with 9 points and need at least a draw to qualify to the next round while Uganda, with 8 points, must win to finish on top of the group.

Most of the players featuring for the Teranga Lions are those who also played against Zambia on the 14th of this month in a 1-1 friendly played near Paris, France.

The West Africans will be playing without their local fans as the encounter was moved to Marrakech in Morocco following the ban on Senegal to host international matches at home.
