The Scorpions are currently preparing for a week-long training camp with two international friendly matches against Congo Brazen Ville on September 9 and Guinea Conakry on September 13 as part of preparations for their crunch 2021 Africa Cup of Nation qualifiers away to Gabon next month.

Coach Tom Saintfiet will use the training camp to prepare his team fit enough for their doubled-legged qualifier ties with the Gabonese next month in Libreville and Banjul respectively.
