U-20 AFCON: Our Motivation Is Winning- Senegal coach

Senegal coach Malick Daf says winning motivates his young Teranga Cubs ahead of their clash against Gambia in the final of the TotalEnergies U-20 Africa Cup of Nations tonight.

The Teranga Cubs have made a strong impression in the tournament winning all their matches without conceding a goal.

They will face the Young Scorpions who they know very well from their zonal qualifying tournament in Mauritania.

“Tonight we will play our final against The Gambia, a friendly country, the same country,” Daf said at the pre-match press conference on Friday.

“We are expecting a great game tonight. Our goal is to win this game. Despite the greatness and talent of the Gambian team. We will try to beat them.

“We have already practiced on the pitch, we know each other well. We prepared to come and play and win.”

Senegal edged the Young Scorpions in the final of the WAFU-A qualifying tournament last year with captain Samba Diallo scoring the only goal.

“We always want to win, we are prepared to come and win. We have no pressure. We want to continue on this momentum, our motivation is to win,” he said.

The former U-17 coach talked about the good management of emotions and the way to attack and defend without being surprised.
