Gambia awaits CAF verdict on Togo player

Thursday, February 14, 2019

Gambia is waiting on the Confederation of African Football (CAF) verdict on a GFF appeal against the Togolese team for playing Adewale Olufade during their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Lome, last October.

The Gambia Football federation (GFF) is now looking forward to receive verdict from the African continental football governing body, CAF as the country’s biggest football gala qualifier clash against Algeria approaches.

In January, GFF protested against the Togolese team for fielding what they called an ineligible player Adewale Olufade.

They will be eager to know the outcome of the protest against Hawks for fielding ineligible player before taking on the North African giants next month.

The Scorpions are currently occupying bottom-place in group D of the continent’s biggest football fray qualifiers with only 5 points after five group matches. They need to secure all three points against Algeria in their final group fixture next month in Algiers and hope Benin slip at home to Togo to make their debut in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Desert Foxes are currently topping group D of the continent’s bi-annual biggest football fiesta qualifiers with 10 points in five group matches. They will be playing for pride after securing qualification to the bi-annual championship last November.
