” HASBeyond competition, we know, sport is a factor of peace, education and human fraternity. Because at the same time, it forges the body, it must train the mind and fight the anti-values that are violence, racism, and discrimination. This is the meaning of the ceremony that brings us together here today. This is the meaning (also) of the Football World Cup, which will bring together next November and December, the 32 best teams on the planet. For the third time, and the second in a row, our Lions will be there after brilliantly winning the African Cup of Nations (CAN). These fine performances confirm the standing of our country in the elite of continental and world football. All my best wishes go with our brave Lions. We trust them. Drawing on their talent and experience, they know the Code of Honor which has now made their reputation. ”Dem ba diex”, that is to say hold the national colors high and wet the jersey until the ultimate effort. The ”fighting spirit” pegged to the body » adds Macky Sall.
