El Hadji Ousseynou Diouf, Augustin Senghor’s Special Advisor for the national teams, present at the Lat Dior Stadium on Saturday evening to attend the Senegal – Namibia match, spoke on the Lions’ victory (4-1).
For the former Senegalese international, Senegal and Algeria would be the only valid representatives of Africa at the next Qatar 2022 World Cup.
“We want to play this World Cup, it’s very important. For me today, a World Cup without Senegal and Algeria, Africa would have no representative. For Senegal, we must now put La Terranga aside and crush our opponents with scores of 5-0, 10-0 or even 15-0 to send a message, ”said El Hadj Diouf.
In August, during the draw for the group stages of the Africa Cup of Nations, El Hadj Diouf claimed that his two favorites for the final victory were Algeria and Senegal.
