Gambia U-20 resume training for African U-20 qualifiers against G/Conakry

Thursday, July 14, 2016

The Gambia National U-20 team has resumed intensive training for their decisive third and final round of matches of the 2017 African U-20 Youth championship qualifiers second leg tie with Guinea Conakry.

Coach Omar Sise’s charges were held to a goalless draw by Guinea Conakry in the first leg in Banjul at the weekend.

The Darling Scorpions, who are currently camped at the Seaview Garden Hotel in Senegambia, are embarking on intensive massive training to prepare themselves ready for the second leg in Conakry in a fortnight’s time.

Coach Omar Sise and his charges need a win or 2-2 draw in Conakry in the second leg to progress to the 2017 African Youth Championship to be hosted in Zambia.

It would be recalled that The Gambia eliminated Morocco to set third and final round of matches of the 2017 African U-20 Youth championship qualifiers against fellow West Africans Guinea Conakry.

On the other hand, Guinea Conakry eliminated Ivory Coast to set date for The Gambia in the continent’s junior biggest football fray.
