The Gambia Football Federation has named the final list of players for the West Africa Football Union (WAFU) Zone A Women’s tournament slated from 27th February to 5th March 2020 in the cities of Makeni and Bo in Sierra Leone. Women’s Scorpions Head Coach Mariama Bom Sowe unveiled the list on Wednesday 19th February 2020 at the end of the team’s training session at the National Technical Training Center in Yundum.
Speaking at the training ground at mid week, Mariama Sowe said the Gambian team is ready for the challenge and is expected to do well at the tournament “because our opponents are not new to us”. The Gambia is pitted in Group B with Guinea Bissau, Mali and Liberia and as such Coach Bom Sowe said she is aware of the task that lies ahead of the Gambia. “It is a challenge ahead of us but we are also prepared because Guinea Bissau and Mali are now good teams and we respect them. We are training very hard for the tournament and i have gathered the best players from the League”.
Bom said she is happy with the composition of the players and their attitude to training. “We train everyday and the girls are responding well because we all know the importance of this WAFU tournament“. She thanked the GFF for the opportunity given to the Senior National Team to take part in the tournament. “The talents are here and we can do it and i want to thank the GFF for the confidence they have in us and that is why we will do everything hard to perform well“, she noted.
The team is bound for local camping on Thursday 20th February at the Football Hotel in Yundum before their eventual travel to Sierra Leone in the coming days.
