LasisiAyodeji:
At the dying minutes of preparation ahead of the 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP, Senegalese talisman Sadio Manè was withdrawn from the team that would represent Senegal at the football festival in Qatar. His immediate withdraw, was seen as a let down to the already high spirit of the newly crowned African champions. However, whilst analysis are being given on Senegal's chances without Manè, we must not be quick to forget that in 2002, Senegal under the tutorage of Bruno Metsu and the inspiration of players like Toni Silva, El-Hadj Diof, Tony Camara, Aliou Cisse, Papa Bouba Diop and Ferdinand just to mention a few, got to the quarter finals before they lost out through a golden goal against Turkey. Ever since, the nation team hasn't really done well in major tournaments until 2019 when, they had succeeded in gathering some of the finest players Africa has to offer on the global stage. The resultant is that, they became champions of Africa for the very first time in February 2022. Exactly 20 years after they had lost out on penalties to Cameroon. Though comprising of a highly talented set of players, one might begin to downplay the chances of Senegal's surprise element in Qatar due to the absence of the inspirational Sadio Manè. At the same time, if we look holistically at the depth in their squad, one might see reasons why this team can make it as far as the semi finals and possibly lift the trophy.
. It cannot reach Quarter Final!

I doubt they can, They have a tall order against Ecuador in a must win game. Ecuador needs a draw to qualify and todays stats show they were a better side against Netherlands, although the game ended 1-1

The only reason why Senegal won this game is because of the poor quality opposition they played. Qatar no just sabi ball. They cannot hold ball for more than two mins without giving it away. Shey Senegal that their Chelsea goalkeeper stood like a mango tree when the Qatar player scored a header. Wo Ecuador will spank them ehn. Ecuador means business oh.
