The goalkeeper Pape Mamadou Sy does not hide the ambitions of the Senegalese selection, qualified for the quarter-finals of this CHAN and which is aiming for a medal in this 7th edition of the African Nations Championship.

Coming out first in their group, the Local Lions will face Mauritania next Friday for a place in the last four. Pape Amadou Sy, the goalkeeper of Senegal returned to this meeting at stake. ” Our goal is to win a medal. We are not here for tourism but to leave our mark. And it must go through Mauritania, next Friday, in the quarter-finals. With the technical staff, we will study this team to develop a strategy to better cope. It will be like a final for us, and we will go all out to win this match and qualify for the semi-finals.” believes the football generation player.

For their last meeting at the May 19, 1956 stadium, Pape Thiaw’s players will have the opportunity to confirm their good performance last weekend against the DRC. “The fact of evolving at the Annaba stadium gives us a certain psychological ascendancy because we are now used to this lawn and to this public. For me, it’s an additional motivation to be promoted to goalkeeper. It’s the coach’s choice, and I think it’s because he trusts me enough. Now it’s up to me to deserve it and prove him right.” adds the Lions goalkeeper.
