    Dakar, Senegal – (African Boulevard News) – As the TotalEnergies U-17 Africa Cup of Nations 2023 progresses, Senegal’s head coach Saliou Dia has expressed that his team is under no pressure heading into Sunday evening’s match against Burkina Faso.

    Despite the weight of expectation slowly piling on their shoulders, the Senegalese team remains confident and composed as they approach their next match. In a recent press conference, Coach Dia highlighted that his players have been working hard, and they are ready to showcase their skills and talent.

    “We have a good team, and we have been preparing well for this tournament. We know that the competition is fierce, but our focus is on delivering our best performance every time we step onto the pitch. We are not feeling any pressure – we just want to play our style of football,” said Coach Dia.

    Senegal has been in impressive form so far, registering a comfortable win over Zimbabwe in their opening fixture. They will be hoping to continue their dominance over Burkina Faso, a side that has struggled in the tournament so far and is yet to register a victory.

    The Senegalese coach, however, refused to take their opponents lightly, acknowledging that Burkina Faso is a team that can surprise anyone on their day.

    “Burkina Faso is a good side, and we need to be careful. We cannot underestimate them. They have talented players who can cause problems for us. But we are confident in our abilities, and we will play with our hearts and minds,” added the coach.

    Senegal’s performance in the tournament is critical as they aim to secure a spot at the FIFA U-17 World Cup later this year. With the tournament being held in Africa, the young Teranga Lions are hoping to become champions and create history.

    As the match inches closer, the Senegal team remains relaxed and focused, eager to showcase their talents and make their country proud. Their confidence is a testament to the hard work and dedication they have put in ahead of this crucial clash.

    In summary, Senegal’s U-17 team remains confident and focused ahead of their match against Burkina Faso in the TotalEnergies U-17 Africa Cup of Nations 2023. Despite the weight of expectation on their shoulders, the team is under no pressure and remains relaxed as they aim to secure a spot at the FIFA U-17 World Cup later this year.
