Gambia will battle Angola in the preliminaries of the World Cup billed for Qatar 2022.

The Scorpions come face to face with The Antelopes for the first time after last meeting six years ago.

The first meeting, then under Paul Put’s reign, was a friendly in Portugal with an Ibou Sawaneh’s goal drawing level for Gambia.

There was a second faceoff two years later against the same Angolan outfit wrapping up 1-1 as the Scorpions fielded a local-based outfit under the late Bonu Johnson with Abdou Jammeh being the lone experienced head.
