Gambia quest formula for AFCON debut qualification

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

The Gambia is still searching for the formula for their debut qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, after their failure to qualify for the previous editions.

The Scorpions under the guidance of coach Sang Ndong, made a poor start to the continent’s biggest football fiesta 2019 qualifiers, after losing away to Benin 1-0 in the opening fixtures in June 2017, in Cotonou.

The Gambia needs to beat Algeria in their second group fixtures in March 2018 in Banjul, after the Squirrels’ loss in their opening qualifier encounter to search for a formula for their qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
