Senegal have opened their new national stadium.

The Stade Me Abdoulaye Wade is named after the country's former president and was opened with a friendly match between a Senegal legends XI and African all-star team.

The new 50,000 seater stadium is located around 20 miles away from the capital Dakar, in the new city of Diamniadio.

Also known as the Stade du Senegal, the new stadium cost around £200m to build. The wider complex also includes two training grounds, one of which includes an athletics track and 2,000 seater grandstand.
