The head coach of the tarenga lions of Senegal, Omar Sar, has said his team will make it to the quarter finals of the CAN2006 currently in Egypt.

According to him he had the chance of watching Ghana-Nigeria match and believe Ghana could have won the game but due to the last minute lost of concentration on the part of the Ghanaian players that cost them to loose the match.

The coach said looking at the way the stars played there wasnt in any way that the stars could have lost the game. He said, he was happy when the head coach of the black stars accepted the fact that his side lost the match because of lost of concentration on the part of his players.

Senegal will play the last group match with Nigeria while Ghana takes on Zimbabwe in another encounter at ismailia at the same time and that will determine which country advance to the next stage of the competetion.

Sar, who is very optimistic of seeing his team through to the quarter finals, also said, he will be happy if his side qualifies along side Ghana to the next stage of the competetion.

He explained that the Nigerian team is not the team that he used to know for some years back and for that matter if they make it to the finals of the tournament it will affect african football as Africa will not see the best football in the years to come.

According to him he believes that some teams have shown that they have prepared well and for that those teams should take home the cup so that it will bring challenge into the tournament for the years to come.
