Scorpions winless run continues at Independence Stadium

Monday, September 10, 2018

The Scorpions winless run at the Independence Stadium in Bakau continues following their 1-1 draw with Algeria in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers despite putting up a respectable performance.

They came behind to draw 1-1 with the Desert Foxes in the continent’s biggest football gala qualifiers played on Saturday.

Striker Baghdad Bounedjah gave Algeria the lead in the 46th minute of the game before prolific striker Assan Ceesay leveled matters for The Gambia a minute later to share the spoils.

The draw earned the Scorpions 1 point in group D after two group matches as their winless run continued at the Independence Stadium since their resounding 2-0 win over Tanzania five years ago.
