Stoke City striker Mama Sidibe is unsure about committing himself to Mali's World Cup campaign.

Sidibe is anxious about missing out on Premiership action next season and told The Sentinel: "I am still thinking about it because next season will be a hard one.

"The national team is really important for my family and for my country, but after what happened last season, I am still thinking about it.

"I need to think about Stoke City as well.

"It is not an easy decision, so we will see what happens when the season starts."
