Senegal defeats Gambia to win U-20 AFCONS
As expected, the young Teranga Lions of Senegal beat their neighbours Gambia 2-0 on Saturday to win their first ever U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.
Goals from forward Sulaymane Faye and midfielder Mamadou Camara in the Egyptian capital of Cairo were more than enough to secure Senegal victory over arch-rivals the Gambia.
The side from West Africa made their way to Saturday’s final with a hundred percent record by winning all their matches without conceding a goal.
It is their fourth finals at the U-20 AFCONS having finished runners-up in 2015, 2017 and 2019.
At the moment, Malick Daf’s charges have followed in the footsteps of the senior Teranga Lions, the Beach Soccer national team and the home-based national team in winning continental glory over the last year.
