Gambia – Fairytale continues

A maiden AFCON appearance for Gambia proved to be a fairytale that has other chapters to be written. The Scorpions qualified to the continent’s flagship competition for the first time in their history and are yet to lose a game there too.

With four points from a 1-0 over Mauritania and a late 1-1 draw with Mali, The Scorpions look on the verge of the next round. A point against Tunisia would guarantee that, while even a defeat could see them waiting a place among the best four sides in third place. But Tom Saintfiet side would not like to take the risk.
