Gambia will battle with Ghana tomorrow in an opening fixture of the West African Football Union Nations Cup.

The tie, to be staged in Senegal, will be a grudge match for the Scorpions who lost to the Black Stars in the previous edition.

The Scorpions have been camping at the Yundum-based Football Hotel under the tutelage of gaffer Omar Sise before leaving for Senegal on Saturday.

The two teams have a chequered past when Ghana hosted the events in 2017 with Gambia threatening to boycott future tournaments amid claims the hosts were controversially gifted a dubious penalty leading to the Scorpions’ exit.

Memories of that infamous incident will float to the surface especially when the same coach Omar Sise is in charge but with a renewed sense of vigour to prove Ghana’s previous triumph was but a fluke.

Senegal, Morocco, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Guinea Bissau, Mauritania, Cape Verde, Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Liberia. Niger, Togo and Guinea Conakry are the other teams in the tourney.
