The Gambia will play Togo at the 12,000-capacity Stade Municipal de Lomé, on Friday at 16:00 GMT (4pm). The match, earlier scheduled to take place at the 30,000-capacity Stade de Kégué was shifted to the Stade Municipal, a multipurpose stadium known for its artificial turf.

According to Gambia Sports, the renovation works currently taking place at Stade de Kégué led to the game’s change of venue.

The Sparrow-hawks will play the Scorpions in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Friday with the game kicking-off at 16:00 GMT (4pm).

The Lomé match will be officiated by Cameroonian Antoine Max Depadoux Effa Essouma who will be assisted by compatriots Elvis Guy Noupue Nguegoue and SadouHamadou.

The Scorpions landed in the Togolese capital Lome on Tuesday and held their first training session at 4pm. The game is to be played on Friday and the return leg takes place at the Independence Stadium in Bakau next Tuesday.
