The Senegalese forward, on his side, maintained his cool and only called for love from fellow Africans saying that he is working for this beautiful continent, Africa and he should not be mocked in reward.
In March 2019, the 20-year-old was one of four young Senegalese players to receive a debut call-up to the national team. Other players include goalkeeper Dialy Kobaly Ndiaye (19), striker Sada Thioub (23), and midfielder Mamadou Loum Ndiaye (22). Krepin made his debut for the squad on 23 March 2019 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar.
