Senegal who are making their appearance to the World Cup after their heroic 2002 quarter-final exit, became the first African country to win their opening game in the showpiece after four African representatives, Nigeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco all lost in their opening group games.

Cisse in a post-match interview said, “This victory means we enter the competition in the best possible way, but we know it will be difficult against Japan”

“We managed to control the game tactically and emotionally”

“I guarantee the whole of Africa is supporting us. I get phone calls from everywhere. We are proud to represent Africa,” he added.

The Teranga Lions of Senegal coach is the only black coach in the dugout and had earlier in an interview said his colour does not matter as football is not about colour.
