Gambia/Guinea Bissau: Gambia up Against Bissau

Gambia's CHAN team left the country's shores yesterday for Guinea's capital Bissau.

The team, under gaffer Alagie Sarr's gambit, is to reach the fellow West African nation by road transport for the return-leg friendly match billed for this Saturday.

The pair's first meeting at the Independence Stadium last Saturday ended in a goalless draw.
