The lower division outfit masterminded unarguably the biggest shock in the history of the annual knockout competition since its inception over five decades ago, shocking Casa Sports, one-time national champion and twice winners of the FA Cup at a packed Demba Diop Stadium in the capital, Dakar.
And they go into history as the first club from the third division to lift the annual competition since its inception in 1961.
Ismaila Sarr gave the lower division side the lead after 23 minutes from the spot before Bassirou Bodian drew level for Ziguinchor-based Casa Sports six minutes later.
Mamadou Lamine Gueye restored Generation Foot’s lead midway in the second half before Bodian evened the scores seven minutes from time and send the game into extra time.
The youngsters remained in control and scored twice through Abdoul Moustapha Kabore (97th) and Mamadou Gueye (104th) but Bodian could only reduce the deficit in the closing stages, allowing Generation Foot to cruise to a historic feat.
Generation Foot, who began the season with seasoned trainer, Abdoulaye Sarr, who guided Senegal to the semis of the Africa of Nations in 2006 (Egypt), have in their ranks Olivier Perrin, a former trainer of French side, FC Metz, partners of the club.
Few weeks ago, they were crowned champions of the National 1 (third division) and produced an impressive record of four wins in four games in the knockout competition.
Next season, in addition to playing in Ligue 2 at their own facilities at Déni Birame Ndao (40-kilometres from Dakar), they will also represent Senegal in the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup.
League champions, AS Douanes will play in the prestigious CAF Champions League next year.
