After seeing the scorpions battered 4-1 in Algeria and one 1-0 to lowly rated Tanzania, Malang Jassey, deputy permanent secretary at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, has called on players of the scorpions to change their attitude towards the nation. The DPS stressed that “The Gambia is more than one individual person and that a renewed attitude is needed by the scorpions in case they are called again.” Mr Jassey heads Gambian delegation and saw his nation battered 4-1 by Algeria in the second leg of the AFCON qualifiers, which thrashed Gambia’s hopes of making a debut appearance in a major football showpiece.
