Aliou Cisse (Head Coach, Senegal)
The most important thing is that we won. It was the expectation of the whole country (Senegal) and I congratulate the players meeting that expectation. Today we have a generation with so much quality, and as a coach I have to work on changing the mentality which is an important element.
“The objective is to uplift the level of football on the continent. The result we see now did not start today. It started long ago. I have never doubted the quality of my team. They (players) have to stop putting themselves under pressure and this one aspect I have been working on.
The third match [against Algeria] is as important as all other matches, and we hope to continue on the same path.
