Coach Sainfiet unveils squad today for AFCON clash with Benin

Thursday, November 08, 2018

Head coach Tom Sainfiet will today unveil his squad for The Gambia’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at home to Benin later this month.

The Scorpions will host the Squirrels in the return leg qualifiers on 17 November at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

The Gambia will be striving for revenge after slipping to Benin 1-0 in the first leg in Cotonou last year to recover in the qualifiers following their 1-0 home defeat to Togo last month in Banjul.

Coach Sainfiet will select a solid squad to beat Benin to improve their chances of qualifying for their first-ever Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon next year.

The Gambia is currently languishing bottom-place in group D of the continent’s biggest football gala qualifiers with only 2 points after drawing 1-1 with Algeria and Togo in their previous qualifier matches.
