Edouard Mendy’s rant has apparently been heard. Named alongside Alisson Becker, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Manuel Neuer and Kasper Schmeichel for The Best goalkeeper of the year trophy, the Chelsea player pointed out last week that he was the only one not to appear with the jersey of his national team, Senegal, on a visual published by Fifa. But the instance did not make the same mistake twice.

On a new visual published on Monday, the former Rennes goalkeeper (29) is well represented with the Teranga Lions tunic, and therefore put on the same level as his “competitors”.

As with Becker, Donnarumma, Neuer and Schmeichel, Edouard Mendy was even entitled to a small digest of his recent performances on the official Fifa website. “Mendy’s contribution to Chelsea’s Champions League victory last season was such that he was named the goalkeeper of the season in the competition, is he recalled. He also played a key role in qualifying Senegal for the last round of the African qualifiers at the 2022 World Cup. “

As a reminder, Mendy is also nominated for the Yachine Trophy, which will be awarded this Monday evening during the Ballon d’Or ceremony. The Senegalese are this time competing with Thibaut Courtois, Ederson, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Samir Handanovic, Emiliano Martinez, Keylor Navas, Manuel Neuer, Jan Oblak, and Kasper Schmeichel.
