Scorpions team captain Mustapha Jarjue is set to make amends come Saturday in its 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign against Morocco following what could be described as a poor performance during the team’s 2-1 defeat to Algeria in the 2013 AFCON qualifiers in Banjul.

“I was disappointed with my performance. Everybody failed during the last game. I was disappointed because I know what I can do. I love my country and if I was following what was said about me the last game I would not be here,” Jarjue said on Wednesday at the Seaview Hotel.

He added: “I want to make a difference by making things right.”

On Saturday The Gambia will host Morocco, who are set to be in Banjul on Thursday. After this encounter, the Scorpions will travel to Tanzania for their second Group C fixture on 10 June. Their other group opponents are Ivory Coast.

“The team has been going through difficult moments since 2011 as most of the players are busy searing for new clubs. Psychologically it is not going well. This is why every time we have a difference.”

He added that now that there is a game on Saturday they need to work as a team to produce results.

“But the hard fact is that it has been a difficult moment,” he pointed out.
