The long awaited match between The Gambia and Cameroon is on Sunday 6 September,2015 at 4:30pm at the Independence Stadium.This is the first time The Gambia is playing with Cameroon at senior level. The Gambia on the other hand have never qualified to play in the Africa Cup of Nations at senior level, though this is the 10th time they have participated in the preliminary rounds. We are hopeful that with the appointment in May this year of the new Swiss coach Raoul Savoy, our football would turn around for the better. Especially with our young talented players who are performing well in Europe, Asia, and America.
It is advisable that we the fans are united and support our Scorpions throughout the match, for we have home advantage which we should utilize properly with discipline. Hundreds of fans are expected to throng the stadium to support the boys. According to Coach Raoul Savoy, his team is hungry for success.Fans should come in large numbers to cheer the boys throughout the 90-minute match.
It would be recalled that since Coach Savoy took charge of the team, The Gambia in June played a friendly match against Uganda in Kampala, which ended 1-all.And in the same month in the African Cup of Nations Qualifiers; The Gambia played an away match against South Africa, which ended goalless.
It is important to note that Cameroon have a brilliant record in football in Africa. This campaign is their 17th participation in the Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers. They have won the Nations Cup four times – in 1984, 1988, 2000 and 2002. They have also participated in the World Cup seven times.
We wish our Team the Best of Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
