Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The Gambia national women team on Sunday shared points with Guinea Bissau in an international friendly match played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

The game was part of the Queen Scorpions preparation ahead of next year’s qualifiers. The team’s proposed international friendly match with Ethiopia was called-off due to travel arrangements.

Goal Machine Adama Tamba gave The Gambia the lead in the 40th minute of the game from Mam Drammeh’s brilliant effort.

Guinea Bissau reacted quickly and leveled matters through Tchaloda in the 62nd minute of the match from a brilliant free-kick to make 1-1.

Tchaloda could have scored the winner for Guinea Bissau from the penalty spot after Gambia’s Penda Colley handled the ball inside the eighteen in stoppage time but her effort was saved by Queen Scorpion’s custodian Mariama Ceesay.

 Speaking to reporters shortly after the game head coach of Gambia Mariama Bom Sowe said she was disappointed with the performance of her girls, saying they will go back and prepare well for today’s match.
