Although our gallant U-17 had lost in their opener, we should not give up hope.
Losing your first match does not mean that every thing is lost. What the team needs most now is our prayers back home here.
As we needs the team to try to get better come their next match, we equally call on all and sundry to continue to pray for them to make the deference. Let?s keep praying for them in our Mosques and Churches. The more we pray for them, the luckier they become.
Even the GFA President, who is in Nigeria with the team, has reassured the Gambian sporting fraternity to keep faith in the team even though they started with a disappointing two nil defeat in the hands of the Asian champions, Iran.
"We are here for business and will make sure that we will book the ticket to the next stage of the competition," he assures.
This is sports. Today you win and the other you lose.
We uphold that loosing the opening match does not mean that the team will not make it.
With our prayers, anything is possible!
Meanwhile, The Gambia takes on the Netherlands tomorrow
