Gambia/Angola: Coach Saintfiet Releases Provisional Squad for Angola, DR Congo Afcon Clashes

Scorpions Coach Tom Saintfiet has called a provisional list of 50 players ahead of this month's African Cup of Nations final round of qualifiers at home to Angola and away to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Gambia, currently ranked 157 in the world, is top of the log with seven points, the same number with Gabon.

The Scorpions will head into the crucial encounters at the back of an impressive home win over The Panthers at the end of last year.

The team will go to camp on March 22 ahead of the home match with the Palancas Negras on March 25 with kick-off at 4pm before rounding off their qualifiers with an away match to third place Democratic Republic of Congo (Leopards) in Kinshasa on 29 March 2021.

Victory at home over Angola on match-day five coupled with a win for Gabon against DR Congo will secure us a maiden place in the AFCON finals with a match to spare.

With their destiny in their own hands, the Scorpions need a maximum four points to qualify, irrespective of the outcome of other matches.

The Belgian tactician will trim his squad to a final list of 25 players before the two encounters.
