AFCON U20: Senegal and Gambia into the finals - Highlights

Senegal-Gambia, it is the poster of the final of the Africa Cup of Nations under 20 years in Egypt. The Lion Cubs and the Scorpions came to the end of their opponents respectively Tunisia (3-0) and Nigeria (1-0), on Monday, March 6 in the semi-final.

The magic continues to happen. The Lion Cubs of Senegal impress with their talent on the continental stage. In this semi-final, Malick Daf's colts have made this appointment a ride. It is in a big intensity that the teammates of Samba Diallo begin the last four. The best scorer of the competition, Pape Demba Diop shines with an exceptional shot outside the box (7th, 1-0). What put a lot of pressure and especially doubts in the head of the Tunisians. Continuing to press the gas pedal, it was the turn of the African champion last February at the CHAN, Lamine Camara to kill a little more suspense (17th, 2-0). The recital is far from over as the Cubs are getting used to it. The new FC Metz player scored twice, taking advantage of Souleymane Faye's and captain Samba Diallo's successive shots to put the ball in the back of the net (52nd, 3-0).

5 victories in 5 games, 12 goals scored and none conceded. These figures confirm beyond the demonstration of the afternoon that Senegal is the favorite to win the competition.

Nigeria trapped by Gambia
The other semi-final delivered its verdict. Gambia continues its attractive course by dismissing Nigeria. Like Senegal, the Scorpions quickly made their mark by scoring in the opening minutes of the game. The Gambian striker Adama Bojang came up again and scored his 4th goal of the tournament (7th, 1-0). Nigeria, the most successful nation of the AFCON U20, dominated the rest of the game, creating several dangerous situations but without being able to come back to the Young Scorpions. By winning all its games with 10 goals and noNE conceded, Gambia has all the arguments to face the favorite, Senegal.
