The Young Teranga Lions of Senegal flourished over their counterparts neighbours Gambia 2-0 on Saturday to win their first-ever TotalEnergies U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.
Goals from forward Sulaymane Faye and midfielder Mamadou Camara in the Egyptian capital of Cairo helped Senegal to victory over their arch-rivals.
The West African side qualified for Saturday’s final with a hundred per cent winning all their matches without conceding a goal.
