World Cup Okocha reveals Senegal’s strength. Senegalese team the Teranga Lions have been praised for their “heart” by Nigerian star Austin Jay Jay Okocha.
Okocha asserts that Aliou Cissé’s team is bold and confident in their ability to defeat any opponent in the current 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Senegal defeated Ecuador 2-1 on Tuesday night to secure their spot in the World Cup Round of 16.
This weekend’s knockout round will pit the AFCON champions against England.
“One excellent thing that this Senegalese squad has gotten right from years ago is heart,” Okocha stated on SuperSport. They have no fear and think they can defeat anyone.
“Moreover, this team has inherited the manager’s character. He wasn’t the best player, but he had passion, so I was able to play with him.
Because they are missing important individuals like [Sadio] Mane, who placed second in the Ballon d’Or, you can see from this Senegalese squad that what they now have going for them is team spirit.
