World cup friendlies: Senegal could face Ivory Coast or Cameroon

Jun 13, 2022

What opponent for Senegal to prepare Ecuador? There would be difficulties in finding sparring partners. And according to the newspaper Record, this situation could push Aliou Cissé to fall back on Côte d’Ivoire or Cameroon to prepare Ecuador, one of Senegal’s three opponents in the 1st round of Qatar 2022.

The Senegal national team qualified for the next World Cup which will be played in November 2022 in Qatar will need friendly matches to prepare for the Qatari meeting. However, the African nations will play the third and fourth days of the qualifiers for CAN 2023 in September. A program that could disrupt the preparation of globalists, including Senegal. Aliou Cissé believes that the Confederation of African Football should consider postponing the matches for the month of September.

Today, Aliou Cissé has reached a point where he plans to stick with African selections to prepare for his group match against… Ecuador. Failing to be able to tie up a meeting with a South American selection of the same profile, the Lions coach will fall back on formations from the continent whose game could be close to that of the Tri (nickname of the Ecuadorian team). And the two teams he thinks he will face are the Elephants of Côte d’Ivoire and/or the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon. “Already the officials of the Senegalese Football Federation are fully on the file to tie up this meeting which should take place at the Abdoulaye Wade stadium, whether or not CAF postpones the days of the September playoffs”, we read in the sports daily. .
