The Spurs playmaker, Lassana Coulibaly, was replaced by Hugo Broos’ men after just 58 minutes into the game. After the substitution, the Eagles scored twice, securing a 2-0 victory. However, it has been revealed that the playmaker’s withdrawal was not solely a tactical decision but was necessary due to his condition on that day. According to Sport News Africa, the 27-year-old star tested positive for malaria, along with his compatriot Moussa Diarra, who was completely left out of the squad. The report also states that both players were eventually isolated ahead of the team’s next game against Tunisia on Saturday night. Furthermore, it is reported that Bissouma’s availability for the upcoming fixture is uncertain. As per Transfermarkt, Bissouma has represented Mali in 25 matches, scoring two goals and providing four assists.
