Ahead the Chan Championship in Dakar Senegal, Coach Omar sise and his men were defeated by Senegal following their 2-0 defeated in an international friendly in a match was played on Wednesday the 21st of August 2019 at the independence stadium in Bakau.
The visitors Senegal went ahead in the early 18 minutes through Abdoulie Bah with a fine finished before Djibril Gueye registering another for the visitor Senegal with a simple tap to make it 2-nil in the 20minuts. However, the Gambia local based team also had their moments in the match after scoring two goals but all were flag for an offside in the night.
Though, the host Gambia did not put out an excellent performance compared to other local categories in the national team in both men and women with such a vibrant performance in their international friendly to Bissau.
The international friendly serves as a preparation test to the local teams ahead of the Chan championship to be held in the Dakar Senegal later in September. The young scorpions finished last year at the final as runners up to Ghana but sise and his men will be eyeing for a trophy when they face off Ghana in their opener. It ended 2-0 in fevour of Senegal.
