The 22-year-old had been in the line-up to take on Guinea in a Group B match in Bafoussam, but was taken off the team sheet minutes before kick off, coach Aliou Cisse said after the match.

, but just before the match we had the confirmation. It was Keita’s clever through ball that split the Senegal defence and set two Guinea strikers free on goal. That's why we removed him from the match sheet," Cisse said, adding that Gueye would appeal his suspension. French sports daily L'Equipe reported on Saturday that the suspension is the latest twist in a saga that started two years ago when the French-born midfielder signed a pre-contract at Watford ahead of the end of his deal at Ligue 2 club Le Havre. Senegal were a much improved outfit after the break and Bouna Sarr’s searching 52nd-minute free kick was close to delivering the first goal, needing just a touch to guide it in. The newspaper said that soon afterwards Gueye changed his agent, who recommended he pull out of the deal. Instead, he signed a four-year contract at Marseille in July 2020. Senegal’s 10 missing players, all out because of COVID-19 infections, included captain Kalidou Koulibaly and first choice goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who also missed their opening game on Monday, as well as Idrissa Gana Gueye and Fode Ballo Toure, who tested positive following the narrow 1-0 win over Zimbabwe in their opening match.

It said Watford filed a complaint to FIFA's Dispute Resolution Chamber, last February. The suspension leaves Gueye facing an uncertain future and puts a stop to his participation at the tournament in Cameroon for a Senegal squad already severely hit by COVID-19 infections.
