It is undoubtedly one of Aliou Cissé’s greatest satisfactions this evening. Lairen’s young guard shone in the victory over Qatar. A good performance from the youngsters which promises a bright future for the national team according to the Lions captain who congratulated the good fight of Ndiaye, Dieng and Sarr.
Their entry gave more shine to Senegal’s victory (3-1). A good game from the youngest, which the captain highlighted in the mixed zone. “It is important that everyone is involved. And we saw that with young people. They entered with great enthusiasm. And a lot of self-sacrifice has done us good. And it’s good to see Bamba score, a good cross from Pape Matar Sarr, Iliman Ndiaye, all the young people…” said Kalidou Koulibaly.
Several players on the national team are discovering that the WC is a good sign for the future, according to him. They will always be able to benefit from the managers’ experience, he explains. “It’s nice and it bodes well for the future of Senegal. It’s good that these young people are coming. There’s a generation that might end and another that’s coming, it feels good. We support them in this. In 2018, when I played my first World Cup, we had older people helping us. Today it’s up to us to help them. And we can see it on the pitch, they are ready to play the World Cup”.
