Koulibaly’s impressive defensive moments
Senegal will return to Cairo stadium after 3 years. This time they will face Egypt in the first leg of the 2022 World Cup play-off round. Previously, they met Algeria on this field at the final AFCON 2019 and lost. At that time, Koulibaly was absent due to suspension.
Napoli centre-back said: “[Trận chung kết AFCON 2019] It was a very difficult match. I watched it from the stands, and when I walked into the stadium, I remembered that game.”
“Everybody knows that and gives us more motivation, that encouraged us to take revenge and win the field no matter what. We will do our best to overcome this pressure.”
“We are ready for the match, especially when we face Egypt after the Africa Cup of Nations final, which makes the match more difficult. We are preparing well now because A lot of time has passed.”
Koulibaly will face Liverpool’s fine striker Mohamed Salah: “I’ve faced Salah a lot since he was in Rome. For me, Salah and [Sadio] Mane is the main strength of both teams.”
