Senegalese coach , Aliou Cisse, presented a special ticket to the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup to the late Papa Bouba Diop, his country’s hero at the 2002 World Cup.
Senegal accompanied the Netherlands to the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup after defeating Ecuador 2-1 on matchday 3 Group A, Tuesday (29/11/2022) evening WIB. Aliou Cisse Goals were scored by Ismaila Sarr and Kalidou Koulibaly.
This is Senegal’s second success in advancing to the last 16 phase. Previously, 20 years ago, or to be precise at the 2002 World Cup, the African Cup winner also managed to progress from the group stage, which at that time was Papa Bouba Diop, El Hadji Diouf, and of course Aliou Cisse.
However, Aliou Cisse does not want to be arrogant because he is the first Senegalese to successfully lead his country to qualify for the last 16 of the World Cup as a player and coach. What did he say?
Aliou Cisse, Senegal lost to the Netherlands on matchday 1 in Group A of the 2022 World Cup . Aliou Cisse At that time, the game of Edouard Mendy et al. rated badly and many will be penalized by the age of Senegal in this tournament.
“It’s beautiful. I think after losing the first game a lot of people saw us going out, but for us it’s impossible. We want to do something big. Today I think we had a great game against a great team from Ecuador who fought with their guns ,” said Aliou Cisse.
“But we were really determined, we wanted to go through, despite the equalizer we always believed in. It was a special day for all Senegalese.”
Not to forget, Aliou Cisse presented this top 16 ticket to the late Papa Bouba Diop. The deceased was the scorer of Senegal’s first goal on the World Cup stage.
“We have our first World Cup goalscorer, Papa Bouba Diop, who has passed away, Aliou Cisse we want to do something big for him. He marked our childhood, all of Senegalese football.”
“Today is for him Aliou Cisse, we want to do well. It’s an honour. I thank his whole family, they are brilliant.”
The England national team is one step away from holding a ticket to the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup Qatar. If you win against Wales early tomorrow (30/11/2022), Harry Kane et al. will qualify as Group B winners with 7 points. But if you lose, of course the chances of qualifying depend on the other team.
If you look at the material of the players, the team nicknamed The Three Lions, deserves to be one of the champion candidates. On the front lines are Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount, Marcus Rashford and many other well-known names.
Meanwhile, the back line, which was once in doubt, has also begun to be tested. Harry Maguire, who was once in doubt because he often made blunders at his club, Manchester United, performed well when defending the name of the country.
Former Arema FC player and Indonesian national team Aliou Cisse, Arif Suyono, is the candidate for England to win the World Cup this time.
“Earlier, England made it to the Euro 2020 final. It’s just that they were unlucky in the final to lose to Italy. Now, the material for the players is not much different.”
“In fact, there are more because in England there are several additional young players who are developing,” explained the player from Batu City.
At the 2022 World Cup , England have not been touched by defeat. In the first match, they won 6-2 from Iran. Unfortunately, then they were held by the United States without a goal. This means that this team is easily complacent after getting satisfactory results.
“Actually England is a stable team. Aliou Cisse Maybe in the second match of the World Cup group phase, they were unlucky.”
“After winning big, maybe it will be easy to play against the United States,” continued the player who is now defending PSMS Medan.
However, Keceng, as he is affectionately known, is still convinced that England will win against Wales in the final match of Group B. On paper, England’s players are superior.
The second factor, Gareth Southgate’s team will be more all out after only playing without a goal in the previous game.
“I’m sure England will be excited again. Because Wales is a very decisive match,” he added.
Keceng added that the 2022 World Cup was classified as difficult to predict. There have been many surprises. Including when England was detained by the United States. But he considered it still reasonable. Because other countries are also experiencing the same thing.
“It’s a tough World Cup. For example, Argentina and Germany lost to Asian countries in the first game. But they got a point in the second game.”
“Once again, for England I am confident of qualifying from the group phase,” he concluded.
Didier Deschamps played down speculation that Karim Benzema could return to France’s 2022 World Cup squad. He even admitted that he did not know where the issue had developed.
Karim Benzema is injured ahead of the 2022 World Cup . Despite continuing to try to recover, the Real Madrid striker failed to recover in time.
The French striker was expected to be out for around four weeks but reports in Spain on Monday night claimed he has recovered quicker than expected and will be back in training with Real Madrid.
As France never replaced him, Benzema is still on the list of players registered for the tournament and has therefore been linked with a sensational return to Qatar if he can prove his fitness.
However, Didier Deschamps dismissed suggestions that Karim Benzema would return and insisted he was happy with the players and squad he currently has.
“Wow. Well, I’m not sure what to say, it really wasn’t something I had thought about,” said Deschamps.
“You seem to know a lot about the situation huh, but I don’t know the current situation.”
“I spoke to Karim Benzema after he left and we know what the conditions are like. So I don’t really know what you are trying to get at. I have 24 players in my squad and I am happy with the squad I have.”
Deschamps also dismissed reports that Aurelien Tchouameni would serve as captain instead of Hugo Lloris.
“No, Tchouameni will not be captain tomorrow,” said the France boss.
“You can try and guess what you like,” he added.
