After the defeat of his family against England (3-0), Aliou Cissé, the coach of Senegal, did not want to push his players. “It wasn’t a mindset issue. I am proud of my boys. We must admit the superiority of England. She pushed us back. Their second goal weighs us down. But it is above all the third that takes us out of the game. I praise the mentality of my team. They did not give up and tried to move forward despite everything. first declared the strong man of the Senegalese selection.
Aliou Cissé then returned to the physiognomy of the meeting and especially to the difference in level between the two selections: “A meeting lasts 90 minutes. Our first 30 were interesting. But we failed to convert. They were a very good English team, strong in duels and physical impact. We were very far from what we are capable of doing. Two or three boys could help us to exist more but there was a big difference between the two teams. We worked for years to get here. But England is 5th in the FIFA rankings. And the difference was seen.
