My first time in the national team was in 2016, I think. I was at Metz and I think I had a game going on that day. I had no idea I had been called up to the national team. In fact, it was my older sister who told me! I had received a message but hadn’t seen it, and my sister got in touch with me to tell me. Normally we find out on the television, when the list of players is made official, but for me it was my sister who told me that I was going back to Senegal to play for the national team. It is an honour to be able to wear the national team colours and badge. It is a total pleasure. When I am representing my country, I want to give everything I have. For me, it is the most important part of my career, being able to represent my country. I’d say the players I admire the most, on top of Sadio Mané, are Moussa Wagué, Saliou Ciss and Cheikhou Kouyaté. It is not easy to come on as a sub for Sadio Mané, like I did on my debut. But Sadio came off and I came on, I carried on doing the job that I was put on to do, and I did what I needed to do. I don’t feel responsibility when I wear the shirt. I do get nervous, but the truth is, all I want to do is do my best and give everything. It was very important for me to play in the World Cup in Russia in 2018 too, it was great because I was able to play every game.
