Seny Dieng is a fair man to get an emergency: he has scored two somewhat late targets and uprooted the world’s best goalkeeper at late advance notice to assist his country with winning their most fundamental Africa Cup of Countries.
Eventually, he is planning to go to the World Cup with Senegal just after assisting QPR with beginning the season incredibly under Michael Beale, who turned down Wolf’s work the earlier month. The club sits 6th in the Title going into their last match before the World Cup break, at Coventry on Saturday.
“Since I was youthful I’ve expected to play for Senegal,” says Dieng, brought into the world in Switzerland to a Senegalese dad and Swiss mother. “I watched Senegal going through to the quarters at the World Cup in 2002 and I comprehended I ought to have been at that level. The main concern is to ascend out of the get-together at the World Cup and sometime later I think there is no restriction to where we can get.”
Being QPR’s No 1 stood apart from Senegal, who hit him up to keep on going a year and on Friday confirmed he – and the hurt Sadio Mané – would be going to Qatar. After one cap, Dieng was huge for the group for the 2022 Africa Cup of Countries, as a student to Chelsea’s Édouard Mendy, who had been named as the world’s driving goalkeeper in Fifa’s Best differentiations.
Mendy got Coronavirus, accomplishing Dieng beginning, close by Kalidou Koulibaly and Mané, and keeping clean sheets in the hidden two social affair games against Zimbabwe and Guinea. Dieng partook in the victory in Cameroon. Coming about to beating Egypt on disciplines, the goalkeeper took the honor to bed. “To be the chief social event to bring back Afcon for Senegal is amazing. We made history. It gives us an exceptional lift.”
His course to Qatar has been a roundabout one. He zeroed in significantly on Switzerland with Red Star and Grasshoppers before a short spell in Germany. Exactly when his simultaneousness with Duisburg showed up at a goal, he knew where he expected to make a pass, and went on basics in Britain because of the past Bolton goalkeeper guide Fred Cosmetologist.
There was time to get a kick out of with Rochdale and Barnsley in the pre-summer of 2016. They offered Dieng contracts yet he acknowledged he could improve and in the end, QPR came calling to join the then-21-year-old. Notwithstanding the way that QPR could see the potential in Dieng, he had bound first-pack information, and none in Britain, so they sent him obtained to get to know his exchange.
He got to find out about the certifiable factors of non-association football. First, he signed up for Whitehawk in the Public Association South and later Hampton and Richmond. “I all around expected to play in Britain,” he says. “It was an enlightening incorporation with non-relationship with the circumstances down there. I could have overseen without getting it rolling at any rate you need to go through that stage at these clubs and play with this degree of social affairs. It was certainly an encounter.”
It hoped for something else than four years – and five advances – straightforwardly following joining QPR for him to make his connection debut for the club in September 2020.
From that point forward, he has changed into their undisputed most ideal decision goalkeeper. He is a pleasant individual, unflustered by pressure. His 6ft 4in edge makes him a fine shot fitting and unprecedented under the high ball, in a like manner dangerous in the rival’s case.
His other objective was for Whitehawk at Chippenham in 2017. “I worked out of the net until I was 14; I truly have a bit of the resource,” jokes Dieng, who has the year and a half on his comprehension.
