The Scorpions qualified for their first-ever Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final. Musa Barrow’s 71-minute goal was enough to take the first-timers forward in the competition.
Despite the high drama towards the end of the game including the unexpected red cards to both teams and Guinea’s countless opportunities to equalise, the Gambian team didn’t lose their focus to making this moment theirs.
The Gambian side welcomed AS Roma’s Ebrima Darboe and Sulyman Marreh while resting Ibou Touray, Noah Sonko and Saidy Janko as a result of food poisoning complications.
Ahead of the game, the president of The Gambia Football Federation announced that the scorpions will receive 10,000 Dollars if they win the game, which we believe they will receive now*winks*.
This is an incredible moment for the team and the Gambian people as it is their first-ever participation in Africa’s biggest football tournament. Reactions on social media platforms towards Gambia’s historic moment is priceless.
The Sisters Show congratulates the entire team and staff for this historic achievement.
