Scorpions head coach, Tom Saintfiet is hoping to line up a formidable squad against Angola in the opening fixture of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on 13 November in Luanda at 6pm.

Coach Saintfiet named a thirty-six man provisional squad for the continent’s bi-annual biggest football jamboree qualifiers with the Southern African country. The number will be trimmed to a seize team that will travel to Luanda for the qualifiers.

Coach Saintfiet will be expecting to present a very strong team to secure vital three points before hosting Democratic Republic of Congo in their second match on 18 November, at the Independence Stadium in Bakau at 4pm.

The Scorpions will be skirmishing for revenge after slipping to Angola 3-1 on aggregate in the 2022 World Cup preliminary qualifiers played last month.
