Jan 19, 2022

What they said after the game

Jim Allevinah (Man of the Match TotalEnergies):

“We showed a lot of solidarity and value. We are happy to achieve our goal. The draw is a good result for us against a good team from Morocco.”

Patrice Neveu (Coach, Gabon):

“My team had the match they needed. The players followed the guidelines well. We thought we would win the match but this draw is still good, which allows us to continue the adventure. We would have liked to take the three points but it is football. In the round of 16 against Burkina Faso, it will be a difficult game against a team that plays well.”

Vahid Halilhodzic (Coach, Morocco):

“We knew the match was going to be difficult. We were behind and my players were able to come back to score twice. We dominated but we lacked inspiration and success. I am satisfied with my players and their reaction. We have achieved our goal with first place in Group C.”
