Diouf relishing Senegal return



Hot-shot Senegal striker Mame Diouf has said he is looking forward to returning to Lions colours having been called into the squad for the friendly against Guinea in Paris on February 5.

Having not played international football for more than a year, the 25-year-old has scored 13 goals for Hanover 96 this season, including eight in the Bundesliga, and has been called up by new Senegal coach Alain Giresse.

"I got the phone call from him and I'm looking forward to meeting him," Diouf told German broadcaster NDR on Sunday night.

"It's been a while since I last played for them."

The ex-Manchester United forward is in a rich vein of form having scored in each of Hanover 96's last five games, hitting the first-half winner in Saturday's 2-1 win over 2009 German champions VfL Wolfsburg.
