The Gambia local based national team, CHAN, completed its first phase of training on Wednesday 11th May 2022, at the National Technical Training Center in Old Yundum.

The sessions are one of three segments to be undertaken before the international friendly to Senegal in June.

CHAN Team Head Coach Alagie Sarr stated that after completing the first phase of the screening on Wednesday, they will hold a group of players that come for another three days of screening starting next week Monday 16 -18 May.

“First three days was perfect. Players played very good football together with commitment. They (players) even played better football than I’ve seen in the league.”

He added that the last three days training program will be next week, before their final selection ahead of their test match against Senegal.

According to him, this preparation (screening) is only for the Senegal game, which he added is geared towards assisting them (technicians) to know their team’s strength ahead of the CHAN competition.

“We are working with the technical team. I started the screening with the help of Coach Matarr Mborge and Amat Cham and now two other technical staff. We are all working towards having a very good CHAN team for the upcoming test match
