Mendy’s Club Career

When Edouard Osoque Mendy started his football career, it was in his native France, where he played in the Le Havre academy before signing professional terms with third division Cherbourg in 2011. However, Edouard Osoque Mendy was released in 2014, after which he almost quit football, before getting an opportunity with Marseille’s reserves. The French born player established himself as a regular in the following seasons at Reims and Rennes.

The climax of his career was when he signed for Premier League side Chelsea for a fee reported of £22 million in the month of September 2020. It will be good to note that Mendy immediately broke into the starting line-up, becoming the first African goalkeeper to play for the club’s senior team, and kept sixteen clean sheets in the Premier League in his first season. The 30-year-old Blues goal stopper also equaled the record for the most clean sheets in a UEFA Champions League season with nine, and kept another clean sheet in the final to help Chelsea win their second title. Again, Edouard Mendy was also awarded both the UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year and The Best FIFA Goalkeeper of 2021, becoming the first African goalkeeper in football’s history to win both awards.

Mendy’s international career

The West London outlet goalkeeper, Mendy was born to a Senegalese mother and a Bissau-Guinean father in France. He was called up by Guinea-Bissau to play friendly matches against Portuguese clubs Belenenses and Estoril in the month of November 2016. His father, at that time, was very ill and was about to pass away, leading Mendy to honour him playing for the Bissau-Guinean national team. He was however shortlisted by Guinea-Bissau to play the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations for them, but he ultimately rejected the call and pledged his future to Senegal.

According to ESPN, Edouard Osoque Mendy was eligible to play for Guinea-Bissau, Senegal, and France, but in the initially stage of his career, he joined Guinea-Bissau in honour of his father, but subsequently switched allegiance to Senegal, where he became the first choice keeper for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, helping Senegal to a runners-up finish. Edouard Mendy also helped his nation win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, while also being named the tournament’s best goalkeeper, keeping a clean sheet in the final.

This means that Edouard Mendy was included in Senegal’s squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon in January 2022. Mendy had his first game at the competition, against Zimbabwe on the 10th of January 2022, where he kept a clean sheet in a 1–0 win for Senegal. After Sengal progressed through the group stages of the tournament, Mendy helped his nation to progress into the final. During the tournament final match against Egypt at Olembe Stadium on 6 February, following a goalless draw after extra-time, Mendy saved a spot kick from Mohanad Lasheen and another hit the post during the penalty shootout to win the tournament for Senegal for the first time. As a matter of fact, due to his stellar performances throughout the competition, including keeping four clean sheets, he was named the tournament’s best goalkeeper.
