The 20-year old Toulouse right back who is a symbol of the new generation of Ivorian players says they are in confident ahead of the game given that their opponents fear them.
“Fear is on the side of the Senegalese. I have some friends in the Ligue 1 who have admitted it and I think that it is a good sign for us,” the defender said.
“There is no pressure to feel coming up against Senegal. We know that it is a very important game, but we need to remain calm and quietly prepare to be able to perform on D-Day,” added Aurier.
“For us, who recently joined the national team, it is very exciting to feel so close in qualifying for the World Cup. It is an honour to contribute to one of the best teams in the world in helping reach that objective.”
