Undermining the Talent of Senegal Squad would be a Big Mistake

With just two weeks away from the FIFA world cup matches, every corner of Russia is abuzz with a lot discussion on the probable outcome of the matches ahead. No doubt, the World Cup matches are nail-biting for the football lovers.


The contribution of Adam Nawalka in instilling the self-confidence and morale in the team would play a vital role.

Star Players

No doubt, Poland squad is more than the Robert Lewandowski. It might be unfair to claim that without the captain Robert, the Poland squad can be written-off. One should afford credit to the mettle, including the record-breaking goals of the captain, but you cannot undermine the talent of other members of the squad. No doubt, Lewandowski is the star performer always.

The over-dependency on a single player might prove costly for the team. In unfortunate circumstances, even a celebrity player also might fail to produce the desired results.

You cannot undermine the skill of Marcin Kaminski, Tomasz Kedziora and of Lukasz Piszczek on the field.

Guarding the Poles

The goalkeeping either by Wojciech Szczesny or Lukasz Skorupski should more vigilant without letting the ball loose.


No doubt, the return of the Senegal squad at the World Cup 2018 is a matter of pride to the country. They have already proven that they are capable of changing the dynamics of the game. We need to wait and watch whether they could repeat such a surprise to the football players.

Key Players

The aggressive pace by Sadio Mane certainly assigns a higher rank of a key player of the Senegal squad. Whether he plays for Liverpool or for Senegal, his contribution has been unparallel.

As long as Kalidou Koulibaly is at the center-half, the player of the rival team finds it difficult to manage the game with ease.


When the Coach Aliou Cisse could exclude Oumar Niasse, you should endorse that he is capable of taking certain bold decisions in the interest of the team. His experience of being a captain of the team during 2002 a positive point for him who has taken over as a coach for the World Cup 2018.

Though the nation is playing for the second time at the World Cup and that there is no much international match experience to the team should not be the reason for any despondency to the team. The team has very good talent, which should be harnessed properly.

The match between Poland and Senegal scheduled on 19th June 2018 will be interested not only for the members of Group-H but for all the football lovers.
