The Gambia has announced an elaborate plan for the resumption of the Afcon qualifiers in November when the Scorpions will meet Gabon in Banjul and Libreville.  The Gambia leads in that group which also involved DR Congo and Angola after a 3-1 win in Luanda and a draw against Congo in Banjul. The Gambia coach Tom Saintfiet yesterday announced a provisional 40-man squad for the assignment ahead.

According to the GFF, the friendly match against Guinea will be played on October 13 in Portugal.  The coach also announced two of his players Hamza Barry and Buba Jobe are both not available due to injuries while Ibou Touray preferred to be left with his club duties.
