Scorpions’ gaffer Tom Saintfiet is hoping to get all his players for his side’s international friendly matches against Guinea Conakry and Congo Brazza Ville next month.

Coach Saintfiet has invited forty players for his side clashes with the Congolese and Guineans as part of their preparations for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers away to Gabon in November 2020.

He will use the ties against Guinea Conakry and Congo Brazza Ville to prepare his players fit for the continent’s bi-annual biggest football fiesta qualifiers in November 2020.

The Gambia is currently leading group D of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers standings with 4 points after two group matches following their 3-1 away victory over Angola before their 2-2 draw at home to Democratic Republic of Congo in November 2019.

Meanwhile, the Scorpions will play against Congo Brazza Ville on 9 October 2020 before clashing with Guinea Conakry on 13 October 2020 in Portugal.
