The Scorpions of Gambia are set to play friendly matches against Morocco and Central African Republic respectively later this month, The Standard can exclusively reveal.
The match with Morocco will be played on March 23 before taking on the CAR four days later, with both matches to be played in the North African country.
Though there has been no official announcement from the Gambia Football Federation, The Standard understands that invitations have been sent to specific players and their clubs with the FA requesting the players to be released from March 20-28.
The Scorpions, who currently lie 178 on the FIFA World Rankings, due to inactivity, last played an official game in September last year, a 3-0 defeat in Cameroon in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
This month’s international break window is one of six available on the FIFA calendar.
