Gambian international footballer, Ebrima Sohna said he is always pissed of when the Gambia national team loses games he could have helped in. Sohna who did not play since the appointment of Coach Sang Ndong, said the decision to invite him or not rests on the coach, not him. “But am interested to see the country wins games. “I am always available if the coach needs me,” he said. As to whether The Gambia stands any chance of qualifying for the 2019 AFCON the former U17 and U20 star said it could be but it will not come from nothing but only if there is early preparations.
Sohna also told The Standard that government should put the past aside and start to take the lead in investing more in the development and promotion of football in the country.
The former GPA, KuPs, Al-Arabi and Finnish club Vaasan Palloseura midfielder said there was little to celebrate in 2017 in terms of result on the pitch, adding that there should be less mistakes in 2018.
This, he said, should be from the Football House down to everybody. “Sometimes it is not about the government investing in sports, but sometimes it is about the people running our sports,” he said.
Sohna is currently in the country after his one season contract with Finnish club Vaasan Palloseura ends but with an option to renew, or not.
