Gambia engages Morocco CHAN team in int’l friendly

Friday, November 10, 2017

The Gambia Senior National team is set to clash with Morocco CHAN team in an international friendly match slated for this weekend in Marrakech, Morocco. 

The international friendly match is part of the Scorpions preparations for their crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at home to Algeria in March 2018 in Banjul.

The Gambia need to beat Algeria in March 2018 to increase their chances of qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, after occupying bottom-place in Group D of the continent’s biggest football jamboree qualifiers with zero points following their 1-0 away defeat to Benin in June 2017 in Cotonou.

The Moroccan CHAN will use the international friendly tie against The Gambia to test their readiness for the 2018 CHAN tournament.
