The local lions of Senegal, Senegal's local national team held the indomitable lions of Cameroon to a one all stalemate yesterday at the Stade Leopold Sedar Senghore, a result that might raise eyebrows for Volke Finker.
SIX out of every ten Gambians are confident that the scorpions can pull a surprise victory up against the four time African champions, Cameroon owing to Rauol Savoy’s team performance against South Africa in the opening match of the 2017 qualifiers.
The indomitable lions are in Dakar in preparation of their crunch AFOCN qualifier against the Scorpions of The Gambia September 6, at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
It was reported that the Indomitable Lions would face the Olympic team of Senegal but they ended up facing Mustapha Seck's team that dumped Gambia out of the Africa Nations Championship qualifiers 4-1 on aggregate in July.
The visitors went ahead through Jacgues Joah's penalty on 17 minutes as Volker Finker was forced to prepare for the Banjul clash with the services of Tottenham's new £12M summer recruit Clinton N'jie and Aurelien Chedjou who withdrew due to injuries.
Seck's charges leveled through Aliou Ba as they hang on for a memorable draw against a star-studded Cameroonian line up which included Captain Stephen M'bia and Vincent Abubakar.
Cameroon are expected in Banjul on Thursday before Sunday's first ever meeting against the Scorpions at senior level.
Gambia currently camping in Casablanca, Morocco are also due on Thursday morning and will then conduct a public training in the evening before continuing preparations close doors.
