Senegal’s Lamine Camara captures CAF Young Player of the Year prize after meteoric year!

Senegalese sensation Lamine Camara capped off a remarkable 2023 by winning the CAF Young Player of the Year award on Monday night.

The 19-year-old FC Metz forward beat fellow nominees Abdessamad Ezzalzouli of Morocco and compatriot Amara Diouf to the prestigious prize.

Camara has rapidly risen from African football’s next big thing into the present, enjoying a meteoric year few could have predicted.

In January, he inspired Senegal to African Nations Championship glory on home soil, claiming the player of the tournament award.

Camara then showcased his prodigious talent at the U20 AFCON in Egypt, this time taking home the best player award as Senegal finished runners-up.

His mature displays attracted interest from several European clubs before Ligue 1 side Metz secured the gifted attacker’s signature.

Already a full senior international, the sky seems the limit for Camara after this monumental year.

With his unique mix of skill, speed and scoring ability, Camara appears destined to become a global superstar if his development continues apace.

For now though, Africa’s brightest young talent will enjoy some richly deserved recognition after announcing himself in sensational fashion.
