Edouard Mendy makes outstanding save in Senegal’s win over Guinea-Bissau


Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy extended his superb clean sheet record this campaign by producing an outstanding save in Senegal’s 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau.

The 28-year-old goalie has kept six clean sheets in eight matches since moving to Chelsea in a £22m deal from Rennes in the summer window.

And in doing so at the club, Mendy became the first Chelsea keeper since Petr Cech in 2004 to keep a clean sheet in his first three League starts.

Mendy has now continued his good form with Senegal in their latest Africa Cup of Nations qualifier game against Guinea-Bissau.

Goals from Sadio Mane and Opa Nguette was enough to seal the victory for Senegal, but Mendy preserved his nation’s clean sheet with a good save to deny Djalo in the final stages of the game.

After the match, Guinea-Bissau’s manager, Baciro Cande, praised the Chelsea keeper for his performance.

‘There were a few minutes left before the end of the first half, unfortunately Senegal benefited from a non-existent penalty, for me there is no foul,’ said Cande.

‘We tried to get back to the score in the second half, we had two or three great chances but we missed them because there was a good goalkeeper in front.’
