Gambians have attached particular importance to this nor mal international al football meeting and jamboree  not least because the GFF officials intend to use a Caf meeting to push  their case for  a possible lifting of the two year Caf imposed sanctions.

Meanwhile The Standard also reliably learnt that another delegation comprising officials of the National Sports Council the Ministry of Youth and Sports is expected to make the trip to Brazil. It is believed that they too would seek to negotiate a way out of the suspensions though just exactly how has not been revealed.
