AFCON 2021: Chelsea legend, Cech predicts country to win trophy


Former Chelsea goalkeeper, Petr Cech, has tipped Senegal to win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Cech stated this while speaking to the club’s official website on the achievement of Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy.

Mendy was recently named as best goalkeeper by FIFA, being the first African to receive the award.

Cech, a former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper, believes Mendy can win the AFCON trophy with Senegal, which would mean adding more trophies this year.

“He [Mendy] is at the Africa Cup of Nations now, Senegal are one of the favourites, so he could even win this trophy before he returns to us.

“And then we have the Club World Cup and the Carabao Cup final to look forward to in a few weeks.

“Hopefully for him he will be on the right end of three more trophies,” Cech wrote on Chelsea’s officials website .
