Gambia senior national team; the Scorpions are keen on securing qualification to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon following their stunning performance in the qualifiers.

Coach Tom Sainfiet and his charges are currently topping group D of the qualifiers with 4 points after their convincing 3-1 away victory over Angola in Luanda before their 2-2 home draw with Democratic Republic of Congo in November 2019.
