Senegalese and Royal Antwerp defender, Abdoulaye Seck believes the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) champions, Senegal, can go as far as winning the FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year.

Seck, 29, watched from the bench when Senegal lost the FIFA first leg playoffs by 1-0 to Egypt in Cairo. But wasn’t called for the return leg.

The second leg finished 1-0 to the hosts and 1-1 on aggregate after extra time, taking the game to penalty shootouts. Senegal came out victorious by 3-1.

Senegal also defeated the Pharaohs on penalties to win the Africa Cup of Nations final in Cameroon, their first continental title.

Reacting after Royal Antwerp’s win against Leuven on Saturday, the 2019 Belgian cup winner with Antwerp said it all boils down to ambitions.

“Why not? All depends on the ambitions that we have, when you see Senegal play, you can see that we have the ambitions. In regards to the AFCON, we had ambitions to win it. Not everyone believed in us but we did the job and we are now champions. He said to OJBSPORT.

“We are going to stay on the same dynamics and go very far. And why not the final and even win it.

Seck’s first half goal was enough to give the visitors the maximum three points on Saturday at the Den Dreef stadium.

“I am happy because I scored the goal and we got the three points. It is something that is exceptional for me.

I hope we are all happy and the team is happy,” he concluded.
