The Gambia senior national team is set to know their opponents for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations on 15 August 2021, according to news reaching Point Sports Desk.

The balloting for the continent’s bi-annual biggest football festivity was initially slated for 25 June 2021 but the balloting was postponed due to covid-19 pandemic.

The Scorpions will be hoping to avoid heavy-weights such as Cameroon, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Ghana and Senegal in the balloting for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.

 The Gambia secured qualification to the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations following their slender 1-0 victory over Angola in a tricky qualifier match played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on 25 March 2021.

Meanwhile, the continent’s bi-annual biggest football jamboree is set to begin on 9 January 2022.
