A few days before the kickoff of the African Cup of Nations to be played in Cameroon, the Senegalese midfielder says he is mentally and physically ready to have a good campaign. » We are first of all very excited, there is a lot of excitement. Playing a first Can is not fair, it is not given to everyone. It’s an experience that is very close to my heart, to defend the colors of my country after physically, I train every day to be ready during the can and mentally yeah I’m ready. We have a very good team, good group cohesion and a good understanding so everything is done to make us feel good mentally. The group has a good state of mind, it is good, everyone is motivated, everyone is training well, is ready to make a good Can ”, Nampalys Mendy said at the FSF microphone.
He adds that “The most important thing is that he does not have an injury and that we are all there. We get along, we train every day to have a lot more automatisms, to have better agreements since everyone is in their respective club. When we are in the selection we do not have time to have good relations but this time we had more time to better prepare for the Can and to compete. We know that there are a lot of expectations behind us. We are ready, we will give the maximum whatever happens we will do everything to defend the colors of Senegal as best we can.. «
