After stunning performances against Sierra Leone (4-0 aggregate win) and Morocco in the qualifiers for the CAF U-20 Championship, Zambia 2017, the Young Scorpions of The Gambia will now take on their regional counterparts Guinea. The first leg match will be played in Banjul on July 9, 2016 and the return leg in Conakry two weeks later.
Last weekend, Coach Omar Ceesay’s boys beat the Moroccans on penalties on home soil after an aggregate one all draw. With a very good rating on away matches and excellent home performances so far, the Young Scorpions only need to raise the stakes higher on their much-improved tactical discipline and teamwork to gain a spot in the final tournament against Guinea that had equally participated in finals of previous CAF and FIFA tournaments.
