Faye To Play?

Faye To Play?

According to the Chronicle, Newcastle United have made a desperate plea to Senegal to let Amady Faye play in Saturday's FA Cup clash with Mansfield Town.

Hw will be involved in the African Nations Cup in Egypt. The Cup starts on January 20 with the final on February 10 and, depending on how Senegal fare, Faye will miss between four and six matches.

With Emre, Kieron Dyer and Scott Parker injured, Souness is desperate to avoid a disaster against lower league opposition. But it seems he could be fighting a losing battle with Senegal, who (under FIFA rules) have every right to turn down the request.
