 Mr. Bajo described Monday’s draw that pitted Gambia against Ghana, Morocco and Tanzania in Group C as fair.

“It’s good, it’s fine and also a challenge for us as the administrators to provide support to the coach and his staff and then the rest they will show what they want onto the boys and the results will be positive,” he posited, further stating that the preparations and support will be better and more than what has been done during the WAFU A qualifiers in Senegal.

“We will redouble our efforts and do more and better because this is very important to us and it’s a pride.

So we will not relent in our efforts to ensure that the team is better prepared in all ways; financially, administratively, technically and morally.

We will not leave any stone un turn to ensure that they are well prepared for glory.”

Despite his busy schedule, the President took time to visit the boys at their training ground and said it is his show of solidarity to the coach and team.

He concluded by expressing gratitude to the Gambian people for their solidarity and support during the tournament in Senegal, while looking forward to a similar triumph in Mauritania.

Former Gambia National Team defender Momodou Futty Danso was also in attendance at the training session and gave both moral and technical support to the players as he helped the young defenders in some tactical sessions.
