Press Release

The Gambia will play a friendly international against The Central African Republic (CAR) on Saturday 24th March at the Independence Stadium, as part of preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The fixture marks a return for the Scorpions, following their recent training camps and friendly matches in Morroco. It can be recalled that the Scorpions defeated CAR in a March 2017 friendly in Rabat, Morocco. The match featured a dominant display from the Scorpions who won the match 2-1 thanks to a goal apiece from Modou Barrow and Mustapha Carayol.
