Senegal midfielder Lamine Camara has credited his senior teammates for his standout Man of the Match performance in the team’s Africa Cup of Nations opening match against Gambia.
Camara’s brace and his overall performance earned him the individual accolade which he says will motivate him to work even harder and it must also be credited to his teammates.
