The Gambia Football Federation, GFF, yesterday confirmed that negotiations are on going to charter a special flight to ease the huge logistical travelling arrangements involved in the November 12 and 16 Afcon qualifiers against Gabon.

Ebou Faye, the GFF second vice president said the plan is the special flight to fly the team from Paris to Libreville, for the first match, and then to Banjul for the second match before ferrying the players to Brussels where they will scatter to their various destinations. ”We are working with the government on this matter so that the whole trip can be easy for the players in the wake of the many restrictions and problems of air travelling these days,” he said.
