    It appears a repeat of the December 2018 WAFU U-20 nations tournament is upon us where we met Mali and Senegal in the semifinals and finals respectively. The semifinal match against Mali actually ended in a 1-1 stalemate and we only came victorious 5-4 on penalties while the Senegalese who is the new sheriff in town in U-20 defeated us 2-0. This is the time for revenge, I hope the boys could take up the gauntlet.
