Konte leads Mali

Sarpsborg 08 and MBSPlayer Aboubacar Konte has been the hero of Mali in the match between his national team and Argentina in the U-20 World Cup, after scoring a goal in the last minute of the extra-time and bringing the match to the penalty-shootout.

After a Group Stage where he has been a starter in all three games, Konte has started from the bench in the match against Argentina in Round of 16. The player of only 18 years old has entered in the minute 115 and only needed 6 minutes to make a difference and equalize the scoreboard to 2 goals, giving one last chance to his national team to remain in the tournament.

From penalty-shootout, Mali has not failed and has won (5-4) against “the albiceleste” to get the pass to the Quarter-finals. His rival will be USA on Saturday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m.
