Senegal coach Aliou Cisse and many of his squad have been rallying round Keita Balde after it was announced the winger could miss the World Cup because of an anti-doping violation.
Balde, who now plays for Spartak Moscow in Russia, has been suspended for 90 days by Italy's anti-doping body for protocol transgressions when taking a test in April.
The test, which showed no signs of banned substances, came after his former Italian side Cagliari lost 5-1 at Udinese.
"Keita Balde has been in contact with many team-mates from the Senegalese national team and with coach Cisse himself," a source close to the player told BBC Sport Africa
