Gambia’s women national team head coach Mariama Bom Sowe said she was proud of her charges’ performance after her side eliminated Burkina Faso to progress to the next stage of the qualifiers last Tuesday night at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

She said the girls have fought extremely hard to display what was expected to have an away goal, saying they fought to contain a Burkina Faso side with very experienced players.

When asked about their next game against their fellow West African side Nigeria, Coach Bom said, “In fact we are in a hurry to get Nigeria before Burkina Faso but the fixture brought Burkina Faso first.
