U-20 stings Casa as Monrovia comes calling


Saturday’s friendly drew a huge crowd to the Box bar in Brikama which also is home to many Casa sports fans. The first half showed a flurry of chances by both sides with Casa Sport making the early impression with Adama Dampha firing a well taken shot that went wide by inches.

In reply, The Gambia’s Madi Fatty could have scored a hat-trick with a little more concentration with splendid crosses from Ebou Kanteh in addition to a chance to put in a glancing header. With two wins in two outings Coach Tapha Manneh and colleagues are delighted they have a well inspired team to take to Liberia Thursday. Should they eliminate Liberia, The Young Scorpions would likely meet Ivory Coast in the second round tie which lead to a ticket to Dakar the venue for the championship next year.

The Gambia has previously done well in this category, qualifying and finishing third in Congo in 2007, which earned the country a ticket to the World U-20 championship in Canada the same year.
