The Teranga Lions went down to Baghdad Bounedjah's freak goal that took a heavy deflection off Salif Sane and looped over the goalkeeper into the net.
Senegal were awarded a penalty in the second half for what the referee initially deemed to be deliberate handball but the decision was reversed after a video review.

I think Marcel Brands has been working with that likelihood in mind so hopefully the required recruitment(s) will arrive in due course.

Everton 1988 - 2019
Does happen to coincide with my tenure with these depressing schmucks.
24 years and no trophy so the idea of letting a contracted player of this quality go is an interesting move.
Everton are tiring.

Despite that, unlike most players who have expressed a desire to move, he has carried on as normal, yes he will be missed, but who would deny him his dream move out of respect for services rendered?
Next year he may not be as attractive a proposition to PSG or any other top side, no-one can go on forever, and he would have to be replaced at some point in the not too distant future anyway, so why not cash in now and accede to his wishes and set the foundations for the new era of Everton?
I have every faith that M Brands is well aware of the situation and has some sort of replacement lined up already.

Everton are tiring at times... but please don't call us schmucks. They are still our thing!

Frankly I dont care about “dream moves” for any of our players and especially not to no marks like PSG. Keanu Reeves is older than them!
Gana signed a big fat long term contract extension with us, hes paid well & deserves a rise for his performances and professionalism. That should be that.
But us being us hes off and we replace him with Delph. Then finish 8th again. Groundhog Day!
Its infuriating until you learn to relinquish hope.

If we don't sell when they want to leave, they will engineer it one way or another. There are exceptions to the rule, but usually money talks.
When you realise the majority of footballers don't give a flying fig about the team or their fans, it will get easier.

Without banging an old drum, most of this is down to agents who always have the best interest of their clients behind their cut of any potential deal. Parasites!

I always say the same thing. If a contracted player wants to leave he has to initiate it by handing in a transfer request declaring serious intent to leave and not waiting around for compensation.
Then Everton need to get the desired transfer fee. Currently he's worth £40M plus to us that may find a top class replacement.
PSG need to get realistic in valuing one of the best players in his position. Unless it's a player plus cash option but Everton need to dictate that. No one else.
I'll be gutted if he goes but I don't blame him for moving for money and an increased chance of winning silverware.
It just had to be done properly. Unlike Delph when he departed Villa. A good player but that lost him respect and he has an awful injury record. But better than Schneiderlin.
