Mendy vs. England: How Will The Story Go?



Mendy vs. England: How Will The Story Go?

Following Senegal’s victory on Tuesday against Ecuador and England coming out on top of their group ahead of the likes of the USA, Iran and Wales, the Senegal national team are set to be face off against England in the round of 16 with the fixture providing Senegal goalie, Edouard Mendy a chance at redemption.

Edouard Mendy so far this season has seen his performances in goal take a dip in form specifically from the first group stage fixture against Dutch side, Netherlands in the world cup tournament, after an error in goal forced Holland to race into the lead and eventually claim all 3 points within the group.

Of course, the error may still be revisited by the Senegal fan base considering a point within that fixture could have placed the Teranga Lions in a perfect position to meet a less tougher opponent had they managed to come 1st in the group ahead of Netherlands.

However, Senegal qualifying into the next round comes as every bit of satisfaction for the African side but this time, eyes fall on Edouard Mendy to redeem himself against the likes of Harry Kane to lead the Senegal team into the last 8 of the tournament.
