The warm-up match was decimated by torrential rain at half-time. A new date is yet to be announced for continuation of the game.

A provisional list of 35-man squad was recently compiled by U-20 gaffer Omar Sise for trials as Gambia look set to partake in the Wafu Mawade Wade memorial tournament in Senegal.

The one-week football tournament is to be hosted by Senegal in memory of CAF former executive committee member, late Mawade Wade.

The championship that brings together all Wafu member affiliates is billed for 3rd -10th October this year at the newly rehabilitated Mawade Wade Stadium in St Louis.

Gambia aims to re-emerge in youth football following the age-cheating debacle and the tournament could serve as preparation for the National Teams that will qualify for the African Nations’ Championship, Rwanda 2016.
