Edouard Mendy to miss international duty

Edouard Mendy to miss international duty: 

Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has been ruled out of this month’s internationals with Senegal because he needs to make a trip to the dentist.

Thomas Tuchel says  on Sunday that the 29-year-old will not be travelling for his side’s two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers because of a tooth issue that requires surgery.

Mendy did not feature in Sunday’s 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Sheffield United with Kepa Arrizabalaga starting in between the posts.

And now Mendy has been ruled out of Senegal duty this month for their matches against the Congo and Eswatini.

Senegal have already booked their place in next year’s Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.

In November 2016, he was called up by Guinea-Bissau to play friendly matches against Portuguese clubs Belenenses and Estoril.

At the time, his father was very ill and was about to pass away, leading Mendy to honour him playing for the Bissau-Guinean national team.

Shortly after, he was shortlisted by Guinea-Bissau to play the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations for them, but he ultimately rejected the call and pledged his future to Senegal.

Tuchel will be desperately hoping his No 1 stopper’s tooth issue is sorted by the time Chelsea return to action against West Brom on April 3.

Mendy has so far kept 11 clean sheets under Tuchel, who extended his unbeaten run as Blues boss to 14 matches against Sheffield United.
