The good school
In Marseille for two seasons, the midfielder gradually nibbled at the time of play while being inspired by two references that he admired. “It is a great pleasure to play with players like Lassana Diarra and Abou Diaby. I learned a lot from them. Humanly, already they are great guys. They have always been there for me, to advise me, to guide me, whether in training, on and off the field. They are big brothers for me. “
As against Chile, he was the only player on the lawn not to be African champion. Hugo Broos would have loved it: “The coach called me, he wanted to select me but I said I was too young and I needed to find a club. He understood, he wished me good luck.“
So he refused to go to the AfCON 2017 to win his place in club and better deserve his place in selection? “It’s well summed up,” he smiled. “I have made a choice and I find today that it has paid off, thanks to my club, the coach has seen what I can do and today I am here to serve my country“.
If he has about fifty matches with Olympique de Marseille and honored his fifth selection with his country, Zambo Anguissa had never scored as a pro. It was done yesterday with this flick that took killed the Australian goalkeeper Maty Ryan.
“We watched videos from Australia and we saw that the goalkeeper often played forward. When I saw the ball coming, I also saw him coming out and I just had to touch the ball, “he said modestly about his goal that crowned helped the Indomitable Lions.
