Edouard Mendy is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Kalidou Koulibaly is regularly cited as one of the best defenders in the world and Sadio Mané is quite simply one of the best players. There is also Gana Gueye or Bouna Sarr. There are exceptional players in all lines. We hope that it will be a good year for our selection because all the leaders of the country have mobilized to put the players in good conditions, ”he declared.

“It’s simple: there are no longer small teams. There are teams that we expect like Ghana, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt and Cameroon, which will play at home … But besides that, we will have to respect everyone because the field is very elevated. Either way, we’ll have to beat everyone, “concluded the former Bolton midfielder.
