Senegal – To prove a point

After waiting for so late to win their opener against Zimbabwe, the Teranga Lions will hope for another win to prove their tag as one of the tournament favorites.

History on their side, as they won the previous two AFCON encounters against neighbors Guinea, but Aliou Cisse knows well history means nothing in such tournaments.

What they said

Aliou Cisse (Coach, Senegal)

“When Senegal play Guinea its always an exciting match, a Derby to watch. Our aim is to win every game, but we have to remember they are equally very strong side. I have always told our players we have no small teams in the competition.
