7:09 am
they are convinced they all claim a 2nd title after the triumph of $990.00 some even believe it's fate. i can do to support their theory of course we've been waiting 29 years for this i'm 28 years old it's the perfect time so i'm going to represent everyone. it was a late winner from superstar that fired algeria into the final after the final whistle on sunday morez was full of the supporters optimism. we had already did not think that this game years here was more. to play the final. tough game. we are capable to to win it. but they're confident to the jubilant supporters who watched senegal triumph over tunisia in the semi final it's only the 2nd time ever that they've reached a final. it's total joy it's national pride we're all happy we've been waiting for
7:10 am
this since 2002 such your money and co have ended a long senegalese wait for a 2nd shot at the title and they're delighted to have come so far sure we're proud because it's been 17 years since we last reached this stage since the generation of 2002. and it's thanks to her surveillance and hard work force. but the hardest part is still to come and only one set of supporters will be celebrating come friday night. and joining me now to delve into all things afghan is donaldson seche donaldson formerly paid for they told him his national team and has since retired from football welcome to the africa so it's come down to 2 teams it's senegal versus algeria is the best final outcome we could have had left 29000. you know if look into the group stage and
7:11 am
also the games till now all things the best final cause you know we have a team like idea of area b. 2 like rico's state nigeria and also senegal made its way up to the finals so offerings the best combination of teams to see if i go ok so this tournament i wonder what were your highlights what were your takeaways from this fund it was the 1st time we had been in what team to place you in almost 16 what did you take away from this one of the thing what take away. first of all is starting the game science so 1st i mean someone normal these in general we saw most of the players are free from their clubs you know because there was always an issue with some players need to be at their club and could not join the national team and also we have like great surprises we have mud augusta who was playing very well you know it seems i. was jointed so was like something special you know
7:12 am
casey i mean you've played international football already you get the games to say i'm in fact would have pictures of you if you would use these with the hawks jersey . but what does it take really and just having watched the you know this this 20 minute what did you feel what did you see in phil african plays. a lot of players are really representing their country so it takes a lot because it's different if you play in the team you play for who are calm 3 so you know about your your families they're looking at you and feeling. like most of the players also really get everything they have for for the national team for the for the for for as opposed to say synagogue the players will play out broadcom and bacon represent their country so and broadly i mean what's your sense about african football i mean looking at a tournament like this and a lot of those players who aren't already paid. overseas maps are bidding for that
7:13 am
what's your assessment of what the developmental football is on the ground in africa offering it's getting better from year to year but we still have a lot of works cause a lot of talents we have all the talents in our comp 3 in our continent but we always tried to to sell them abroad so my and my vision of why we don't build something in the concrete for people in the conference to play in the country because we have like converse like a jury or in tunisia and egypt all played a mostly playing in their own country so this will be the next step to make a trip to for the people in their own country so you envision a scenario where people don't hear society think that playing overseas is the most prestigious but that we can develop. on the continent makes a lot of sense so tomorrow in the area that it's going to go i have to ask you do you have your money on. senegal is a self-sustaining on course is the 1st time they went so far and the 2nd time and
7:14 am
they have never had won the african cup of nations so and i have some favorites there the likes of money and like them that's in a way material that they're sila isn't in the firing of some psyche thank you thank you thank you and that is a full on his africa today and now that we're counting down to the 29000 afghan final today we'll leave you with some of the highlights on shelf this year's tournament makes travel advice.
