Gambia to open Qualifiers in February

Gambia have been handed a difficult draw for qualification to the World Cup

The Confederation of African Football CAF has just announced the dates for the Preliminary Rounds of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations to be hosted in South Africa.

The Scorpions of the Gambia will open their account at home to the Desert Foxes of Algeria on February 29th before paying return to the visitors in June.

The Scorpions at the time of announcing the Preliminary dates are still without a Head Coach after the Belgian Paul Put’s contract was terminated by the Ministry of Youth and Sports after he failed to qualify the senior team to continental competitions on two occasions.
