Sochi player Sissako told how the Mali national team supported him after the mistake that deprived the team of participation in the 2022 World Cup

Malian player “Sochi” Moussa Sissako on the air of the program Nos Etrangers au MATCH PREMIER, he recalled how he had become the main culprit of the defeat of the national team during the play-offs for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in the African zone with the Tunisian team, noting the support of Malian national team players.

The fate of the Mali-Tunisia clash was decided by the single ball that Sissako rammed into his team’s goal in the first encounter. The player then received a red card. The teams’ second match ended with a score of 0-0, as a result, the Mali team could not participate in the World Cup in Qatar.

“Everyone in the team supported me. And if you even take the older generation, former Malian national team players Frédéric Kanoute and Seydou Keita also supported me after the game. And for me, at that time it was very important.

Since Mali will not be in Qatar, I will support France. I was born here, I became a footballer. I will support them. But I will be very surprised if they can defend the title, because there is a curse of champions when the current holder of the trophy cannot win it again in the next World Cup,” Sissako said on MATCH PREMIER.

For the Mali national team, Sissako, 22, played four games.
