Charlton Athletic central defender Naby Sarr has been called up to the Senegal squad to face Congo and Swaziland. National team coach Aliou Cisse named his group of 24 as they begin qualification for the 2021 African Cup of Nations, to be staged in Cameroon.
Sarr has made seven appearances for the Addicks in the Championship this season and managed a goal in the 3-0 victory over Derby County at The Valley. The Senegalese defender took to social media to express how ‘proud’ he is of having been called up and these fans shared their messages of support.
Fully deserved. Well done, Nabs ?

What do we think?
Naby Sarr has turned in some impressive performances for Charlton Athletic since he joined the club back in June 2017. The Senegalese defender made the move from French side Red Star FC and has never looked back. Indeed, since that move, the enforcer has gone on to make 93 appearances across all competitions and scoring six goals for Lee Bowyer and the Addicks, becoming a key cog in a well-oiled machine. At 26-years-old, Sarr will represent the Teranga Lions for the first time – a proud moment in his career and we couldn’t be happier for him.
