Senegal qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations knockout rounds as Group C winners with a perfect record following their 2-0 victory over Guinea on Tuesday.
Cisse has made his mark on the national team as a head coach, leading his country to their first Africa Cup of Nations trophy in 2021.
Senegal and their 2021 AFCON success
At their first AFrica Cup of Nations appearance in 1965, Senegal finished in fourth place in a six-team tournament. In 1968 the tournament increased in size to eight teams, but Senegal crashed out in the groups stages.
In 2017, Senegal's fortunes improved slightly as the West African side managed to reach the quarter finals of the tournament.
They went into the final as underdogs as rivals Egypt had Mohamed Salah, who was in a rich vein of form at the time. Despite this, Senegal won the game 4-2 on penalties.
Upon their arrival back to Senegal, the country's capital, Dakar, hosted the country's biggest ever party.
Senegal at the World Cup
Just two years after the Senegal international football team were founded, they affiliated themselves with FIFA to allow them to compete on football's grandest stage.
Senegal qualified for the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup, after group wins over Qatar and Ecuador, but were knocked out by England 3-0.
Camara lead the line in the early 2000s, having made his professional debut at the age of 21. His two goals, one of them golden, in the 2002 World Cup against Sweden will be forever remembered as one of the most historic moments in Senegal's history.
Another Senegalese legend is midfield powerhouse Idrissa Gana Gueye. He is also the joint top appearance holder for Senegal and has been the anchor in their midfield since his debut in 2011.
