Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has been criticised for his role in both goals Senegal conceded in their 2-0 defeat to Netherlands.

Ally McCoist, commentating for ITV, was not satisfied at all with Mendy’s performance, saying: “I wasn’t too happy with the first and I’m not too happy with the second.

“He just palms in to an area where he should be pushing it wider. Depay comes in, oh dear me, the goalkeeper is really poor, it’s a comfortable one for him.

“Does he see it late? It’s not even going in. Just a follow up from Klaassen for the goal.”

As well as McCoist, fellow ITV pundit Ian Wright called-out Mendy, adding: “For me, the goalkeeper has to do better. A goalkeeper of his calibre should be pushing that into a safe zone.”
