“It was great to see the Super Eagles win, but the way they did it was just as important and impressive … They played with two strikers and they were so fast and aggressive that they scared the Iceland. It is important that they continue to do so – and Senegal too – if they reach the last 16. If they decide to stay on the defensive and begin to fear conceding goals, they will go home, “warned Didier Drogba.


Regarding the performance of the African teams, the Ivorian star said that “the start of the World Cup for Africa was disappointing until Nigeria beats Iceland last Friday. “.

According to Drogba, Egypt has certainly come out, but it would have been a different story if Mohamed Salah was in good shape.

“I know him well of our time in Chelsea, when he was like a little brother to me, and I know what he brings to the Egyptian team. It’s not just his threat of goals, it’s his charisma … It’s really sad that he can not do his best because of his injury. It’s a tragedy for him, “said the former elephant striker while recalling his injury at the edge of the World Cup, South Africa 2010.

“I crossed it when I broke my arm just before the 2010 World Cup. Like Salah, I played – but I was 100% away when in a World Cup you have to be 120%. He recalled.

As a reminder, the Super Eagles face Argentina’s Leo Messi on Tuesday. A match that Mickel Obi and his family are obliged to win imperatively at the risk of packing.
