Gambia

Known by the nickname ‘The Scorpions’, Gambia will be appearing in their second WAFU Nations Cup: they played one of just two matches in the 2002 tournament in Ivory Coast (losing 5-0 to the hosts) before it was cancelled because of the outbreak of a civil war, did not make the cut for the 2010 or 2013 events, and withdrew from the 2011 finals.

This year they have been pitted against Ghana in the opening knockout round and will be aiming to spring a major surprise against the host nation.

The Scorpions are the lowest ranked team in the 2017 WAFU Nations Cup, as they currently occupy 158th place on FIFA’s ladder, and their recent results include a 0-4 aggregate defeat at the hands of Mali in the qualifiers for the 2018 African Nations Championship.
