The Senegal team is ready for the World Cup in Qatar

The football high mass will begin in almost two weeks, and the Senegalese team will surely want to take revenge.

Eliminated in 2018 in Russia, because of the new FIFA regulations on fair play, when they were tied on points with Japan, the men of Aliou Cissé dream this time in Qatar of passing the first round of this competition. Teranga Lions winger Krepin Diattia believes in the potential of his teammates.

“We won’t hide from the fact that we know we have a good team, with great players in every position. Now it’s the World Cup, the biggest competition, so we won’t hide and we’ll give everything to make a great tournament, I think that’s what we have to do.”

Aligned in group A, the Senegal team will face the host country, Qatar, Ecuador, and the Netherlands. Aliou Cissé, who has held the reins of the team for seven years, has retained the hard core of the 2018 team.

“….. So good teams overall, and we will have to be ready from the start and do everything to get out of this group. Not to say that we are supposed to qualify in this group, it would be a mistake, because we have to play and stay focused on this group, and I think if we do that then we have a chance to qualify.”

Quarter-finalists in 2002, the reigning champions of the African Cup will carry the hopes of an entire continent alongside Cameroon, Morocco, Tunisia and Ghana. The competition starts on November 20.
