It will be a » fierce fight ».That is what disclosed the the statement of Kalidou Koulibali during the pre-match press conference held Wednesday in Samara ahead of the last group H match between Senegal and Colombia.
The central defender of the lions wants to be clear. This match with Colombia , like the previous match with Japan will not be easy but they will fight as valiant soldiers to honor the whole Senegalese nation and show they have a great team. According to Koulibaly they made surely some mistakes during the previous match but they worked hard to rectify them.
The people of Senegal is standing behind the lions and coach Aliou Cisse is aware of it. He has had time to observe Colombians and will put in place a good strategy to prevent them from playing. Once again Senegal is not going concentrate on the individualities but they will especially favor a collective game .
Aliou cissé takes very seriously the statement of Colombia coach who shows his optimism in the match against Senegal, saying that that his main objective is to win and reach the knock out phase. According to Cisse Senegal is one of the best teams in this world Cup and they will show it
Aliou Cissé and Kalidou Coulibaly think that being the only African team to stay in the competition cannot be a pressure but it is rather a stimulant because they know that in addition to the 15 million Senegalese, they have a whole continent behind them. This is very encouraging.
