The 2m21 pivot will soon play for the Senegal national team. Summoned to Boniface Ndong’s list, he will be there, assures the Senegalese Basketball Federation.
The current national coach has again called on Youssoupha Fall to play in the 3rd window of the basketball World Cup qualifiers. As a reminder, he had summoned him for the first time last June during the preparations for the Qualifying Tournament in Tokyo. Due to an injury, the player withdrew.
For this regrouping which will start in two days, he reassures on his presence of the den. “Youssoupha Fall has agreed, he will be there” informed the president of the FSBB in an interview with the daily L’Observateur. This should clearly put an end to the debate on his belonging to Senegal. It is true that FIBA had whistled the end of recess on the impossibility of France to naturalize the player who won the African Championships in Maputo in U18 in 2012.
The 27-year-old pivot plays for ASVEL and is in the running for the Betclic Elite Finals against Monaco of Ibrahima Fall Faye, winger in the national team. The two teams will play match 3 tonight, they each have one victory. These two players will probably be the last to join the den.
