Daf was recruited by Belgian club Westerlo when in his mid-teens, but it was not until he moved to Sochaux that he began to reach his full potential. He took a couple of seasons to establish himself as a first-team regular and went on to play an important role in the side that won the Second Division title in 2000-01. A steady left back, he was a member of the team controversially eliminated by Nigeria at the quarter-final stage of the 2000 African Nations Cup and also featured regularly for the Lions in their campaign to qualify for the World Cup finals and was a key member of the 2002 African Nations' Cup Final team where he received glowing reports for his performances.

Appearances in World Cup Qualification: 7.
