Senegal’s defender Kalidou Koulibaly admits that the Senegal team were not surprised to see Benin qualifying for their first ever AFCON quarterfinals.
Benin faced Morocco in the first round of 16 matches of this year’s AFCON, where they defeated Morocco in a thrilling 4-1 penalty shootouts after a tie of a 1-1 score. This victory led them to their first ever quarter-finals and it didn’t surprise Kalidou and his team as they get ready to face them this Wednesday in quarter-finals.
“People see Benin as a surprise package, no. We have been observing them since the group stage.”
“They have a compact team and play very well. They have been able to upset top teams including Morocco.”
“We will do our best to be able to overcome them in our next game.”
“We will remain calm as always. We will prepare for the game against Benin mentally and physically and give our best to win and put a smile on the faces of Senegalese.”
