Senegal youngster Krepin Diatta has expressed his delight with his performance in their opening 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) Group C game against Tanzania on Sunday.

The Club Brugge player sensationally delivered an eye-catching display against the Taifa Stars with his stunning strike that helped the Teranga Lions clinch a 2-0 victory at the 30 June Stadium.

"I'm very happy, but I think the main thing was to win this first match before the other games. There are Algeria and Kenya coming,” he told the media.

“But, I think the team played well and I'm happy. Now, this is only the first game. We must not get excited. We have a good group and we must work well.

“I am happy and will give the best of myself. You have to play every game and see what it will give.”

Senegal will hope to defeat Algeria in their second group game to book an early ticket to the knockout stage.
