Gueye & Camara shine as Senegal dominates Gambia in AFCON opener

Senegal made a commanding statement in their Africa Cup of Nations title defense, clinching a resounding 3-0 victory over a 10-player Gambia in the opening Group C encounter.

The early moments of the match saw Pape Gueye seizing an opportunity in the fourth minute to put Senegal ahead, setting the stage for a dominant display.

The 20-year-old prodigy, Lamine Camara, named the Young African Player of the Year in 2023, showcased his immense talent with a fine finish seven minutes into the second half.

Camara’s prowess was further highlighted with a sublime second goal, elegantly finding the top corner four minutes from time.

This comprehensive triumph not only underscored Senegal’s formidable presence in the tournament but also acted as a corrective after a day of surprising outcomes that defied expectations.

Senegal’s performance in the Charles Konan Banny Stadium not only demonstrated their commitment to the title defense but also served as a reminder of their footballing prowess on the African continent.
