Newcastle United's Papiss Cisse has withdrawn from the Senegal squad to face South Africa in Durban on Wednesday, February 29.
The decision was made as a precaution after the striker was substituted in the second half of the 2-2 draw with Wolves after picking up a minor injury.
His club and international strike partner, Demba Ba, will also miss the trip to Durban after being left out of the Senegal squad.
Newcastle United say they are unable as yet to confirm whether or not Cisse will be fit for Sunday's Tyne-Wear derby.
Cisse has scored twice in three appearances for United since signing in the January transfer window.
