Senegal international Alfred Gomis is set to miss two-three months of action after suffering a knee injury this past weekend.

The 26-year-old, who started in the Teranga Lions’ 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final loss to Algeria, picked up the injury when he collided with Moses Simon during Dijon’s 3-3 draw in the French Ligue 1 on Saturday.

“The MRI performed on Monday confirmed the initial diagnosis – it is indeed a rupture of the posterior cruciate ligament of the right knee,” Dijon said in a statement, as per BBC Sport.

“This injury should not require surgery. The Senegalese goalkeeper should be unavailable for a period of two to three months.”

Gomis has established himself as Dijon’s first choice between the posts this season, since joining the French club from SPAL in August.

The shot-stopper started five games for Senegal in Egypt last year following injury to Edouard Mendy who has since started his country’s last two fixtures.

Senegal will be involved in back-to-back 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at the end of March.
