Moussa Sissoko ready for Belarus

Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko is concerned his dream of representing France in a World Cup may be in danger following the goalless draw against Georgia.

Les Bleus trail Spain by three points in Group I and now look likely to face the lottery of qualification via the play-offs.

But Sissoko is keen to leave the disappointment of failing to beat Georgia, 97th in the FIFA world rankings, behind and concentrate on the trip to Belarus.  

“During the first hour on Friday, we should have done more to raise our level, but unfortunately, we did not,” Sissoko told the Evening Chronicle.

“Why? I do not have the answer. During the last 30 minutes, the team played better and faster. If we had done that from the beginning of the match, we might have been able to score. It’s a game to forget, and we must quickly focus on Belarus.

“We are disappointed but it’s not over. We have a fight and we will give everything. It would be a nightmare if we did not qualify. It is every player’s dream to play in a World Cup.”

Meanwhile, Shola Ameobi’s situation with Nigeria seems far more positive.

The Newcastle striker made his home debut in the 2-0 victory against Malawi which secured the Super Eagles a two-legged play-off with a place in Brazil next summer at stake.

Ameobi said: “I’m very happy to be here now with the Nigera team and hopefully I can help us achieve great things.

“I wanted to be part of the squad for the African Cup of nations and I regret that a clause in my contract stopped that from having. We are a good team, full of good players and let’s now see who we get in the play-off.”
