Tuesday, October 08, 2019

Gambia senior national team; the Scorpions have landed in Djibouti city ahead of their most-anticipated 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers first-leg tie away to Djibouti tomorrow.

Coach Tom Saintfiet and his team assembled in Istanbul, Turkey on Monday to prepare themselves fit enough for their mid-week battle with the East African country.

The Scorpions will hold series of training sessions before their encounter with Djibouti.

They require a comfortable victory in the first-leg in Djibouti city  tomorrow to increase their hopes of securing a spot in the group phase of the qualifiers following their exit from the 2022 World Cup preliminary qualifiers after losing to Angola 3-1 on aggregate last month.
