Diop’s leading the way for African talent


SENEGAL won the Under 20 Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday, beating Gambia in the final in Cairo. Senegal’s Pape Diop, a midfielder who plays for Zulte Waregem in Belgium, was the top scorer at the tournament with five and our data experts at Delphlyx have highlighte­d three more with numbers to command attention from European scouts.


(Gambia) is a centre forward nicknamed the Gambian Hurricane who scored a hat-trick in the quarter-final and the only goal in the semi-final against Nigeria.


(Uganda) is a central midfielder and 6ft 8in tall with composure on the ball, who has already been on trial with St Mirren and Dundee United.

3 OMAR FAYED (Egypt) is a central defender who plays for Al Mokawloon and was one of the bright spots of a disappoint­ing tournament for the hosts.
