Poland 1-2 Senegal. And serious chances to classify.
Group H surprised the common soccer fan, not me. The four selections have a very similar level, they are from different confederations and anyone could pass … Yes, anyone.
Aliou Cissé’s team took a step forward.
Grzegorz Krychowiak gave a pass to anyone knows where, but this is another story.
The Senegalese gave a tactical dance to the Polish team and started with the right foot, just like in 2002. Although that was epic and surprising.
Today was just another day in the office for a well-worked team; I think Russia has made it quite clear.
Most of the players are active in Ligue 1 and Premier League … Not in your friends’ games.
Get out of your head that Africa is a weak continent!
Senegal is stronger than many of the “favorites” …
An experienced youth
And no, this selection is not a single game won against Poland.
They starred some eliminatory without defeats and, if they like history, they were the African team with the best participation in a World Cup.
The most curious thing is that in that team of 2002 (Senegal’s only participation in a World Cup) the captain was Aliou Cisse. Today is the technical director.
42 years speak of little experience as a coach, but a historical World Cup in the curriculum is desired by many of the consolidated.
A beautiful and experienced youth … On the benches.
In the field, the situation does not change much.
Ismaïla Sarr is only 20 years old and won the position to none other than Keita Baldé.
Does anyone remember that Sadio Mané is 26 years old, too?
Template young, fresh, with spark and, above all, well worked. (Worthy to dream of another great cup.)
Or not, Polish friends?
The only sure thing in this World Cup is that the globalization phenomenon has strengthened all the teams.
The tactical level that is being seen in Russia is exquisite.
Without looking at continents, anyone makes you a great game and eliminates you …
How could Senegal do it?
