Everton fans are absolutely gutted for Oumar Niasse, after the Senegalese striker missed out on his country’s World Cup squad.
There are plenty of players who Everton fans feel have been hard done by in recent times, and Oumar Niasse is certainly one of them.
The Senegalese striker has nearly always made a positive impact when he gets a chance, but has started just ten times in the Premier League this season.
The 28 year-old clearly hasn’t had the trust of either Ronald Koeman or Sam Allardyce, but has still managed nine goals and two assists in all competitions this season.
Remarkably, the speedy striker actually has the most shots on target in the league for Everton this season (18), despite only making ten starts.
The striker’s progress has obviously not been noted by his country though, as he was left out of the squad for this summer’s World Cup. Toffee teammate Idriss Gueye is in the squad.
Fans are devastated for their cult hero, and they can’t believe Stoke City’s Mame Biram Diouf has been selected instead.
Some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
Mame Diouf being picked ahead of Niasse is ridiculous.

Diouf is the striker that doesn’t score. So Niasse isn’t picked instead of him. https://t.co/zSzfmyJLQY
