Senegal coach, Aliou Cisse has come out to say that his team has the means to beat Egypt when they host the Pharaohs in their 2022 Fifa World Cup playoff second leg match in Diamniadio. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he is completely satisfied with the composition of the team that he put out in Egypt’s stadium, even if he did not appreciate certain displays in the first half.
Cisse added that Senegal players want to go to the World Cup, so they will prepare well to get the job done on Tuesday.
His words, “I am completely satisfied with the composition of the team that I put in place today, even if I did not appreciate certain things in the first half.”
“Football is about efficiency and Egypt were efficient today unlike us. We have to work on that. This is not an individual or system problem.”
“I was clear with the boys. Before the game, I let them know it was the first leg and whatever happens here today, it gives our team an opportunity to qualify.”
“These are situations we have already experienced but I think we have the mind and the experience to be able to qualify. If we manage to score our chances, I think we can win.”
“Our players want to go to the World Cup, we all want to go. We have the means to beat Egypt at home. We have to prepare well. Today’s result does not decide the outcome of this double confrontation.”
“There will be a decisive match in Dakar. It is up to us to do what is necessary to win.”
