Diaspora, Africa – (African Boulevard News) – Abdoulie Jammeh, the head coach of Gambia’s U-23 team, has expressed his firm belief in the abilities of the U-20 team to beat any team at the World Cup tournament. With such a bold statement, it is clear that Jammeh has confidence in the young talents coming up through the ranks.
The U-20 team’s recent performances have shown a great improvement, with impressive wins in friendly games against other African countries. This has given the team momentum and belief to continue their fine form and take it onto the global stage.
Speaking to reporters, Jammeh said, “I can confidently state that the U-20 team in Gambia is one of the best in Africa. They have the potential to match and even beat any team in the world at the World Cup tournament.”
This is not the first time that Gambia has produced a promising youth side. In 2007, the U-17 team won the African Cup of Nations in Togo, while in 2019 the U-20 team made it to the semifinals of the same tournament in Niger. This proves that Gambia has a rich history of producing young talent, and Jammeh believes that this U-20 squad is one of the best he has seen.
Jammeh’s belief in the U-20 squad is not unfounded, as they have already shown their potential with impressive results in their recent friendlies. They defeated Senegal 2-1 in an exciting game that could have gone either way. This was then followed by a comprehensive 3-0 win against Morocco.
Jammeh’s belief in the team has been backed up by the president of the Gambian Football Federation, Kabba Bajo, who has also shown faith in the young players. Bajo praised the young team, saying, “We have one of the most talented young teams in Africa, and we believe that with the right guidance and preparation, they can achieve great things in the World Cup.”
In conclusion, it is clear that the Gambia U-20 team has a lot of potential, and with the right nurturing and guidance, they can compete with the best in the world. With Jammeh’s experience and confidence, as well as the support of the Gambian Football Federation, the team will surely be looking to make their mark on the global stage.
