It was very sad to see a national team playing again with in empty Stadium on Sunday during the brilliant performance from our darling U17 team against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone. But the main question is what is stopping people to come out and giving support to the boys? The players need the support of the public and private sector.
Pointsports went around to seek the views of people on this matter.
Speaking to one Nigerian, Stanley, who is a football fan he said, "
In his reaction Momodou Bah, a Senegalese man residing in The Gambia for more than 23 years, told Pointsports that, "The Gambia has a good, very young team and I believe that with the help of the public and the private sector we will see The Gambia not only in the African Cup of Nations but the World cup as well," he explained.
It will be recalled that in an interview with Pointsports the Senegalese legend Juan Franco Bocanday said that The Gambia have a very young team as he used to watch them playing during the Youth tournaments. "They have good and intelligent players and all that they need is the support from the general public and the private sector," he said. That's the voice of the Senegalese legend so what is stopping the general public and the private sector from coming out?
