Two members of Bruno Lage’s Wolverhampton Wanderers squad have, on Thursday, been called up for international duty ahead of the fast-approaching African Cup of Nations.

PL hit hard

The AFCON has, of course, proven headline news in the Premier League over the last couple of weeks.

This comes with a host of the division’s clubs expected to be deprived of key performers for up to a month, amid the battle for international supremacy between Africa’s top footballing nations.

Amongst the more high-profile departures for the Cameroon-based tournament will be the likes of Liverpool pair Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, as well as Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey.

Egypt, Ghana and more, though, may yet be made to wait longer than they had anticipated for such players to arrive, as tensions continue to mount between club and international federations:

Boly & Saiss called

Whether the AFCON’s stars are released later this month or early next, though, as alluded to above, those called up for the tournament will be joined by a pair of members of Bruno Lage’s Wolves squad.

This comes on the back of confirmation that both Romain Saiss and Willy Boly have been selected to take part in the competition.

Defender Saiss is expected to link up with Morocco on the back of Wolves’ meeting with Arsenal on the 28th of December, with Boly, fitness-permitting, to do likewise with the Ivory Coast, too:
