Senegal’s Kalidou Koulibaly joins Chelsea

Senegal skipper Kalidou Koulibaly has joined Premier League side Chelsea FC from Napoli on a four-year deal, the London outfit have confirmed.

“Koulibaly is an international teammate of Chelsea’s first-choice keeper, Edouard Mendy, and will significantly bolster our defensive options following the departures of Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen,” Chelsea said in a statement.

“The captain of Senegal, who is a natural leader, and a strong character, will bring plenty of experience in challenging domestic and international titles.”

“I’m happy to be here with this team at Chelsea,’ said Koulibaly told the club’s website. ‘It’s a big team in the world and my dream was always to play in the Premier League.

He added, “Chelsea came first to get me in 2016, but we didn’t make it. Now when they came to me I accepted it because they really wanted me to come to the Premier League to play for them. When I spoke to my good friends Edou and Jorginho, they made my choice easier so I’m really happy to be with you today.”

The Senegalese, on his Twitter account, posted a picture of himself on a plane to America to join Chelsea’s pre-season tour with the caption: ‘Napoli, terra mia’ – translated to ‘Naples, my land’ – followed by a blue heart and signing off with his name.

Koulibaly is Chelsea’s second summer acquisition of US tycoon Todd Boehly’s new era as owner after the club signed Raheem Sterling from Manchester City on Wednesday.

Zambia’s Copper Queens set for Women’s WC

Zambia’s Copper Queens set for Women’s WC

Zambia Copper Queens advanced to the Women’s AFCON semis after a 4-2 triumph against The Lionesses of Teranga on penalties at the Complexe Sportif Mohamed V in Casablanca following their 1-all stalemate after extra-time on Wednesday.

As a result, for the first time in their history, they will be part of the 2023 Fifa Women’s World Cup to be hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

They were part of the 2020 Olympic Games but had never qualified for the World Cup.

Senegal, who finished second in Group A behind Morocco started the encounter with more purpose, but Bruce Mwape’s Zambians found their way into the game. However, they could not impose the rhythm of their short passing patterns.

No team from either country had progressed to the semi-finals since the inception of the women’s Africa Cup of Nations competition in 1991. Neither country had graced the women’s World Cup.

Zambia was dealt a serious blow when football authorities announced that Barbra Banda, a top player in the team, was ineligible for the competition last week after a “gender verification procedure” that determined her testosterone levels were “too high” for her to play.
