Teranga Lions of Senegal coach Aliou Cisse has admitted that the Three Lions of England are the superior side.
England on Sunday night thrashed Senegal 3-0 in the second round of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and ended their hope of going further in the tournament.
Cisse said they wanted to go further but England proved too much for them.
” It wasn’t a mindset issue. I am proud of my boys. We must admit the superiority of England.
They pushed us back. Their second goal weighs us down. But it is above all the third that takes us out of the game. I praise the mentality of my team. They did not give up and tried to move forward despite everything”.
The game lasts 90 minutes. Our first 30 were interesting. But we failed to convert. They were a very good English team, strong in duels and physical impact.
We were very far from what we are capable of doing. Two or three boys could help us to exist more but there was a big difference between the two teams.
We worked for years to get here. But England is 5th in the FIFA rankings. And the difference was seen”, he said.
