SEN 5-0 RSA: Why Golden Eaglets Should Be Wary Of 14-year-old Diouf If The Team Reaches Semifinals

It's no longer news that South Africa's U17 team were hammered by the Senegalese. The game started poorly for the South African side as they conceded two “own goals” in the 36th and 39th minute before Sadio Mamadou scored Senegal's third goal. In the second half, the reality is Senegal continued to press, while South Africa simply hung on, but conceded two goals through Amara Diouf.

Amara Diouf has now scored against almost every single opposition he has faced at the ongoing U17 African Cup Of Nations Tournament. Note that despite being 14 years old, he captained the team. The young star scored two goals against South Africa, a goal against Somalia, and two goals and an assist against Algeria. It was only Senegal's opening game that he didn't score. However, beyond his goals, he is also a very fast player. Against South Africa, he was involved in almost all the goals. He was very good on set pieces as he delivered great balls into the box. So, Golden Eaglets should be wary of the 14-year-old winger Amara Diouf should the team reach the semifinals.
