national senior team coach Tom Saintfiet has returned to the country after
completing his European tour prior to the Scorpions 2019 Africa Cup of Nations
qualifiers away to Algeria next month.
As part of his tour, coach Saintfiet visited several European countries and monitored his players ahead of their crucial qualifier match against the Desert Foxes for a spot in the continent’s biggest football fiesta to be hosted in Egypt later this year.
Gambia must beat Algeria in Algiers in their final group match and hope Benin slip at home to Togo in Cotonou to qualify for their first-ever Africa Cup of Nations.
Algeria have already secured qualification to the Africa Cup of Nations after beating Togo 2-0 in the qualifier game last October. The Desert Foxes will be playing for pride after gaining qualification to the continent’s bi-annual football championship following their resounding win over the Hawks.
