“It’s really an amazing step for me coming from the U-17, U-20 to the senior team is great. Everyone feels hungry to be part of the senior national team now. And I think it will be a great motivation because now we have taken the first step to be part of the [Gambia] senior national team as young players. I think it will be a big motivation for the young players.”

“The national team has given me much in my [football] career from the U-17 to the U-20. Because it’s the national team where I showcase my talent to sign [the] chance to sign my first professional contract. So, it’s amazing to have the first call up to the [senior team],” he added.
