Bolton Wanderers striker El Hadji Diouf has been asked to re-consider his decision to end his international career.

"I can do nothing to force him but what I can do is talk to El Hadji because this issue is in the interest of the Senegalese nation," says Senegal boss Henry Kasperczak.

"He is a model within the squad and in any case, since I have been coach of Senegal he has never let me down, he has always behaved nobly.

"Frankly, I don't understand what has motivated his decision, but I do believe that only discussion can change things, especially as the player is so well loved by the fans."
