Amara Diouf makes history as youngest player to feature for Senegal’s senior team

1 Min Read

A remarkable moment in African football history as Amara Diouf, at just 15 years and 94 days old, became the youngest player to participate in a TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. 

He also earned the distinction of being the youngest player ever to wear the Senegalese senior national team jersey.

His journey to this historic moment began with an outstanding performance at the TotalEnergies CAF U-17 Africa Cup of Nations in Algeria in 2023, where he emerged as the tournament’s top scorer with 5 goals.

 This promising talent caught the attention of Aliou Cisse, who handed him his debut in the 70th minute against Rwanda.

In the 81st minute, the young star almost added a spectacular goal to his debut when he volleyed a well-worked move, only to be denied by an impressive save from Fiacre Ntwari.

This is just the beginning for the young sensation, who has already made a significant impact in a star-studded Senegal team heading to Cote d’Ivoire as defending champions of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations.
