Gambia begin training for WAFU Championship

Friday, August 04, 2017

The Gambia have started intensive training for the 2017 WAFU Zone football championship to be hosted in Ghana next month.

The Gambia local-based Scorpions under the guidance of coach Omar Sise, assisted by Abdoulie Bojang, are currently embarking on massive training at the FIFA Goal Project in Old Yundum to prepare themselves physically fit for the sub-regional football championship next month.

The Gambia are set to clash with the host Ghana in the opening on 9 September 2017.

Coach Omar Sise guided The Gambia to the WAFU championship final against Senegal in 2015, but the home-based Scorpions were disqualified from the championship after failing to honour a penalty shootout against the Taranga Lions, after their goalless draw in the regulation time in the final played in Saint Louis.

The 2017 WAFU football championship is bankrolled by Fox to be hosted in Ghana from 9 to 24 September 2017.
