Senegal Defeat Gambia To Secure First-Ever U-20 AFCON Title, Flying Eagles Claim Fair Play Award

Senegal have been crowned 2023 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations champions after defeating Gambia 2-0 in the final on Saturday.

    Senegal winning almost everything in Africa is not by fluke. They’ve laid proper foundation for success. Their boys also look very, probably the youngest squad in the tournament. I watched the CHAN tournament, they were excellent too. The boy called Lamine Camara is a proper baller, highly skillful and technically gifted footballer. Not the jankara and overaged players paraded by clueless Laddan Bosso.

    Congratulations to Senegal jare, they deserve everything.

      The Senegalese FA is not headed by crooks like Amaju Pinnick.

      Bro, how do these giants from Senegal look younger than the Flying Eagles,? I don’t believe you. Pls let’s leave what we can’t verify (their ages) and focus on only the football.

        Senegalese people are generally giant’s. Have you seen their female team? There naturally tall but are far younger than our players.

        Senegalese a mostly giants. A visit to DaRks will give you conformation. May be because they eat too much rice or something about their gene. Concentrate on their faces rather than heights. They all look young. Not like Agbalaka, Abracadabra and Osama Bin-Laden!

          Let’s stop talking down on our team.. our team also looks Young aside a few.. none of our boys have played more than season in the Nigerian premier league, a good indicator of their young age.. most came from academy and one just wrote waec.. pls we should stop talking down on our team. The Senegalese captain look very old but no one wants to talk about him..

          If our coach got his tactic right in the semi we would have given Senegal a good game in the final but I hope he haa learnt his lessons

      Listen darling John I, it is wrong to call Nigerian players Osama Bin Laden. These beautiful boys did well. What you wrote did not make me want to kiss you. Sexy men like you normally say go things.
