Traoré wants Mali to win AYC title

Dakar - Mali have qualified for the semi-finals of the African U-20 Championship in Senegal and also for the 2015 Fifa U-20 World Cup in New Zealand after seeing off South Africa challenge in Group B on Thursday in M'Bour.

“When we arrived in Senegal, we pulled little attention. Journalists were not even coming to our press conferences. Our team didn’t matter much, but right now I can confirm to you that there are many knocks on the door,” Traore said.
