Friday, May 04, 2018

Liberian president George Weah has patronised The Gambia National U-20 team by donating 10,000 US Dollars to them after beating Ivory Coast to reach the 2018 WAFU Zone A football tournament final hosted in Liberia’s capital, Monrovia.

The Young Scorpions broke Ivory Coast’s ‘undefeatable’ title after beating them 8-7 on post-match penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw in regular time in the semifinal on Wednesday to reach the Sub-regional football carnival final.

They will now face the host nation Liberia in the final tomorrow Saturday at the Samuel K. Doe Stadium in Monrovia at 18:00 hours.

Weah, a former World player of the year was present at Gambia’s final group B clash against Mali last Sunday. The financial assistance is expected to bolster Coach Matarr Mboge and his charges’ preparation for the final showpiece against the host nation Liberia tomorrow.
