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.

Senegal defeated archrivals the Gambia with goals from forward Sulaymane Faye and midfielder Mamadou Camara in the Egyptian capital of Cairo.

The West African team advanced to Saturday’s final with a perfect record, winning all of 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.
