Despite being one of the favorites in each edition, the Teranga Lions of Senegal are still dreaming of their first ever African Cup of Nations title. The Aliou Cisse coached side go to Cameroon for the 2021 edition with winning as their first priority.
Their best performances came in 2002 and 2019 when they finished as runners-up during those editions.
According to Cisse, there are very many capable teams in Cameroon who can emerge as winners but Senegal will try their level best to win.
“Senegal can win this AFCON, but there are also many teams capable of winning this edition,” Cisse said.
“It is going to be very difficult, and we must continue to work and look at all the mistakes made in the past and start the next edition in the best possible way,” he added.
Senegal will need top performances from their star players like Sadio Mané, Idrissa Gana Gueye and Kalidou Koulibaly if they are to come out victorious in the 2021 edition.
