Senegal was eliminated due to inadequate fair play points. While reacting to the elimination, Senegal’s coach Aliou Cisse says his side would have scored a goal in the first.

He insists that even though his team was in control of the match, he is disappointed for his team and for the new generation of players who fight every single day for their country.

“I think we could have scored a goal in the first half,” Cisse said via Goal.

“When it’s working well in football you have to convert and score, we were not able to do it unfortunately then the penalty that was not awarded I will have a look at the VAR review but I’m not sure.

“We were not able to score, which would have been better for us. In the second half, our team played somewhat better, I think we did control the match and I’m disappointed for my team and for this generation and these players who fight every single day for our country.

“I will continue to encourage them to be with them because I’m sure we can expect many pleasant things in the future.”
