The former Scorpions midfielder noted further: “the Gambia U-20 team has performed exceptionally well in the past competitions. We always concentrate on the tactical aspect of the game, which is crucial”.

Mamadou Bah, the team captain, shared that he and his teammates are thrilled to be part of this historic moment. “It’s an incredible experience to participate in the tournament, and we are fully prepared. We will take it one step at a time, and gradually, we will achieve our goals because it’s every young player’s dream to play for their national team,” Bah commented.
