Senegalese President, Macky Sall welcomed the Cubs of Teranga during a special ceremony following their coronation for AFCON U20 2023.
The Head of State said he was satisfied with the performance of his young ambassadors.
After their failures in the final of the 2015, 2017 and 2019 editions, Senegal finally won the first AFCON under 20 in their history by disposing The Gambia (2-0), on Saturday in Cairo, Egypt.
The Senegalese, who won all their matches in this tournament without conceding a single goal, were above the lot compared to all the teams in this AFCON. In particular their neighbor, who logically lost for thier first final.
As after AFCON 2021 and CHAN 2022, President Macky Sall sent his congratulations to Senegal’s young U20 team.
During the celebration in the Palace of the Republic, Macky Sall can be seen in a video lifting the trophy for Senegalese fans to touch.
“Warm congratulations to our Cubs and their staff for their brilliant victory in the AFCON U20 final. Unprecedented in the annals: 6 games, 14 goals, zero conceded! Better team… We can’t do better“, said the Senegalese leader, proud of his young players.
