Charlton fans have taken to Twitter to react after they discovered that Naby Sarr had received a call-up to the Senegal squad.
It is the first time that the Addicks centre-back has been called up to the senior squad, with Aliou Cisse clearly keeping an eye on the 26-year-old’s efforts in the Championship this season.
Sarr has been somewhat of an unsung hero for the south London side so far this term, scoring one goal in seven Championship starts as Lee Bowyer’s men sit 9th – just five points off the top of the table.
The former Lyon defender has recorded an impressive 4.3 clearances per game in England’s second tier, as well as one tackle per 90 minutes.
No disrespect to the likes of Macauley Bonne and Tom Lockyer, but Sarr’s call-up means that he could be playing with world-class players such as Kalidou Koulibaly and Sadio Mane – it is a commendable achievement from the 6 foot 5 Charlton centre-back.
Let’s take a look at how the Addicks fans on Twitter reacted…
Naby playing with the big boys! 😍
