“We are proud. We never won it before,” Edouard Mendy said after the AFCOn final, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“We worked really hard to win this trophy and today we won as a group and as a country and that is why I am super proud.
“The shooters in the penalties did really well, I tried to do my best to save one shot and I did that, so I am super happy!”
The Chelsea goalie saved one shot in the penalty shootout, helping his side beat Egypt in the final.
He was named the tournament’s best goalkeeper, having conceded just two goals in six games.
