Tops / Flops Malawi-Senegal: Thomu surprising, Mané unrecognizable


The pale copy made by Mané and Senegal, Thomu man of the match... The tops and flops after the draw between Senegal and Malawi (0-0).


Charles Thomu, unexpected man of the match

First selection crowned by a man of the match trophy for Thomu, substitute goalkeeper of Malawi.

This 22-year-old doorman, with an unusual profile since he is not really a giant, stopped all the attempts of a Senegal, however armed in attack.

If at the end of this match, Malawi is third in its group and can claim qualification in eighth, it is thanks to him.

Bouna Sarr, the only satisfaction?

In a dismal Senegal team, Bouna Sarr was the only player to show a desire to create play. In his right lane, the Bayern Munich player multiplied one-two and cross attempts to make Mané shine, Dia and Diallo, all invisible in this part.


Sadio Mané, unrecognizable

Since the beginning of this CAN, Mané is far from being the one we knew in England. With a total of one shot on target (on penalty) in three matches, the Liverpool player is the symbol of a broken down Senegalese attack. Against a courageous Malawi, he faded as the game progressed, even to the point of forgetting his presence on the pitch. Imprecise in his transmissions and easily annoyed, the captain and technical leader of the Teranga Lions is simply unrecognizable. He will have to step up a gear in the round of 16 if he wants to help Senegal win the first CAN.

The game proposed by Senegal

How can a team so attractive on paper offer such a messy and soporific game?

Senegal, on the line of its first two group matches, was again disappointed by the content of its match.

The finalists of the last edition, who include in their ranks some of the best players in Europe (Mané, Mendy, Koulibaly among others), do nothing with a very high ball possession (78% against Malawi).

If the defense can congratulate themselves on not having conceded a goal in three games, the attack had better lay low.
