The Gambia National assistant Coach, Lamin Sarr, has said that thirty players are currently training at Independence Stadium, Bakau, in preparation for the Amilcar Cabral Zone II championship scheduled to take place in Guinea Bissau, November 22 to December 4.
Lamenting over his team’s level of preparation, Mr Sarr said the team is currently training only in the mornings, whereas a double shift could be more productive. He also informed that out of the thirty trial players, 20 will go to camp and 18 finally selected for the tournament.
The team will be headed by senior team coach, Jose Martenez.
It could be recalled that The Gambia has never won this Championship since its inception in 1972 when it was called Amilcar Cabral Cup and re-named Zone II in 1979.
