The Gambia has scores of Football talents born outside the country, with many European countries, including Spain, France, Germany, and parts of Scandinavia, hosting most of these brilliant young players.
The long-term project is to bring these players into the U17 and U20 national teams to integrate them at an early age.
The national team is gradually becoming a continental success, but the Gambia will be better off when they bring in these young talents from an early age.
Lyngby Boldklub’s versatile offensive (Left-Wing, Right Wing, Forward, and offensive midfield) player is a delight to watch. Born in Hvidovre in 2005, the Gambian-Danish showed impressive signs in his early days in Lyngby.
Secka was called to action and tasted 20 minutes in the Future cup when Lynby held AC Horsens to a 1-1 draw. His stint with the U19 has earned him three goals and one assist in five matches.
A solid winning mentality and desire to improve have made Anderlecht and Ajax interested in the 17-year-old offensive midfielder.
His essential quality is dribbling, but his pace and finishing are among his greatest assets. In addition, the teenager is technically sound, solid, and outstanding in 1v1 offensively.
He earned two caps with the Danish U16 when he debuted against Germany in October 2020.
Mounir started football with Fraum Bk and had a successful stint with FC Nordsjælland, where he won one Danish League U15, two Danish cups with the U17, and one U15 Future Cup in 2019, where he scored seven goals, including the final against FC Fredericia.
Seck described his move to Lyngby Boldklub as the “choice of his development and growth” and hopes to debut in the Superliga in the long run, but he has dreams beyond that.
“My other dream is to play for Gambia national team and in the biggest leagues in the world.”
