Awa Tamba and Sunna Njie, both players of the Red Scorpion female football team, have vowed to retain their female league title when the league season gets underway. The duo was speaking to Observer Sports on Wednesday shortly after a friendly game against a male football academy in which they suffered a 4-1 defeat.
They said the test game was very important, as it will help the technical staff to assess their fitness not only for the league but also their international tournament in Dakar, Senegal.
When asked how she felt when she learnt that the last female league was call-off, Awa Tamba, who was part of the team that represented The Gambia at the Female U-17 World Cup in Azerbaijan replied that she was disappointed, but, added that she looks forward to a better league this time. "I look forward to win the league again in another decent and clean way. As we always say, we are simply the best and we don't mind what people say about us," she stated.
"The way we possess the ball no other female team does it like that. We are again preparing for the league and my fans are going to see a different Sunna Njie," Sunna Njie told Observer Sports.
