Senegal’s road to Russia has been impeccable. Since the appointment of Aliou Cisse, former captain of the international side, they have become unbeaten in Group D of the African World Cup Qualifiers. The captain for the 2002 side progressed further into the competition than ever before, is now leading the way for the 2018 side to do the same and more.
For the first time in sixteen years they will be featuring on millions of screens as they go head to head with some of the most renowned clubs in the World, hoping to progress as far as possible through the FIFA 2018 Russia World Cup. Senegal’s style of play in 2002 hasn’t been successfully emulated until now, at the hands of their captain turned manager. It is more than likely that these could become the bogey team for many.
