scorpionsThe Normalisation Committee of The Gambia Football Association (GFA) has named its entire plyer list and officials for the country's World Cup qualifier against the Elephants of Ivory Coast later next week.


The team is leaving Banjul on Sunday 17th March for Niger. While in Niamey, the Scorpions will continue to train and be engaged in local practice matches to hone their skills ahead of the Ivory Coast clash and to also acclimatize with the general weather conditions. The team and delegation will then leave Niamey on 21st March for Abidjan where they will finally settle for the much anticipated World Cup qualifier billed for Saturday 23rd March, 2013 at the Felix Houpheout Boiny stadium in Abidjan at 17:00hrs.
