The preparation of the Senegalese national team has experienced unexpected twists and turns. Between the postponement of the training camp in Kigali, Rwanda, the cases of Covid-19 revealed in the Tanière, Aliou Cisse and his men have experienced some unpleasant surprises. But not enough to dent their confidence and their good mood for all that. The proof, their first training session on Thursday afternoon in Bafoussam, took place in a very relaxed atmosphere. With smiles on their faces, but also a great application during the workshops, the Teranga Lions apparently feel no pressure for the moment. A good omen for the Senegalese selection which is cited among the big favorites of this African Cup of Nations.
The competition starts on 9 January with the opening match between Cameroon and Burkina Faso.
