U20 AFCON: Senegal Coach Acknowledges Nigeria Defeat As Morale Booster


Malick Daf, the coach of Senegal U20 MNT, claims that his team’s victory against Nigeria in the Africa U20 Cup of Nations group stage match is a morale-boosting accomplishment.

On Sunday, at the Cairo International Stadium, the Teranga Cubs defeated the Flying Eagles 1-0 in a fiercely contested contest.

“The result will greatly raise our morale and increase our desire to continue achieving more,” Daf told reporters.

“There was a strong desire from both teams to win today. We worked hard and put together the right plan to face Nigeria and win.”

“We thank God for achieving this important victory,” the former national U-17 coach said. “We faced the former African champions, who are a strong team, and they play very good football.”

Senegal will look to build on their winning start to the campaign, as they face Mozambique who held host, Egypt to a goalless outcome.

“We have an important match ahead of Mozambique, and then we will face Egypt. The task is not easy, but we will continue to fight for victory.”
