The Gambia female national team will tomorrow, Saturday 25 January 2014 play Guinea Bissau in a friendly encounter at the Brikama Mini Stadium.

The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) recently finalised talks with its counterparts in Guinea Bissau for the friendly international football match set to involve its national women’s teams.

The friendly at the request of Guinea Bissau, who have lined up series of friendlies geared towards their respective competitions for women, will also give The Gambia an opportunity to hone the skills of their women’s team ahead of its qualifier in Africa.

Under the guidance of the GFF technical director, a recruited team has been training at the National Technical Training Centre in Yundum.

Coach Mariama Boom Sowe is heading the technical team and is being assisted by a backroom staff.

The number was set to be trimmed down at the end of their training to cater for the official number of players before going to camp ahead of tomorrow’s encounter.
