The press briefing is scheduled to take place today at the Seaview Bamboo Hotel in Senegambia at 12 noon.
The Scorpions are bracing up against Taifa Stars in the 2014 Global biggest football showdown qualifiers set for Saturday 7 September 2013, at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
The Scorpions lost to Taifa Stars FC 2-1 in Daru Salaam in the first leg last year and are also currently languishing at the bottom of their 2014 Africa World Cup qualifiers after losing to Ivory Coast 3-0 on 23 March 2013 in Abidjan and 3-0 on 8 June 2013 in Banjul, before losing to Morocco in Rabat on 15 June 2013.
The Scorpions are yet to snatch a win in the global biggest football fiesta since the start of the qualifiers last year and will be hoping for a win against Taifa Stars on Saturday to improve their position in Africa and Global ranking.
The Taifa Stars are occupying second position from bottom with 6 points in five games and both sides will also be playing for pride as Ivory Coast have topped the group with 13 points in five games.
