Ismail Sarr and Lyman Ndiaye celebrate a goal for Senegal

Athletes in Senegal objected to President Macky Sall’s decision to grant the soccer players the agreed bonuses, despite the failure to achieve the goal set for them in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The African champions entered the global competition on a mission to reach the quarter-finals, but they were knocked out in the second round, after being defeated 3-0 by England.

President Sall announced, two days after the national team’s elimination from the World Cup, that his government would pay “full allowances to all members of the official delegation”.

The value of the bonuses, which is part of the 23 million dollars allocated by the government to participate in the finals, varies according to the performance and task of each individual, including 26 players.
