- Clean sheets in RO16, quarters, semis (one leg each) and finals.
- Just 3 goals conceded in 12 games.
Edouard Mendy: "I'm very touched to be receiving this award. I'd like to thank my club, the staff, my goalkeeping coaches and my team. It would not have been possible without them and to the fans as well."
