Gambia Marks AFCON Debut With Win Against Mauritania 

Gambia got their debut campaign at the AFCON to a perfect start after pipping Mauritania 1-0 in Group F on Wednesday.

Ablie Jallow emerged the hero for the Gambians as his first half goal was enough to seal the win for his side.

Jallow struck with a left-footed effort from the edge of the penalty area to put Gambia ahead after 10 minutes.

There were also good second-half chances for the small west African country.

Gambia are joined at the top of the group standings by Mali, who edged Tunisia 1-0 in Limbe earlier on Wednesday in a controversy-filled encounter.

    I watched the match..MTN were the better team throught out but Gambia Coach won it from the bench. I pray and hooe Egu contines as S.E coach for being able to give back self belief and confidence which Rohr had killed with his negative mentality. We need a coach better than Eguavon and with the right mentality to take over from Evaguavon if we must hire. It doesn’t matter WHR he comes from ; Black or white. All we need is a coach with the Nigerian Mentality and never say die attitude towards winning. Not some one like Rohr ..he is the worse Coach ever hired by Nigeria in terms of philosophy and mentality. I remember how in Algeria 1990 Professionals refuse to come play for S.E and that promted Westerhof to good round the streets of Nigeria and picked boys who played to the finals and won silver even though they lost 5;0 in the first game. From the way Rohr talks he will never have achieved such feat with home base players. How about Kechi who took a team with 90% debutants to AFCON and won it , after qualifying Togo to the world cup with a team composed mainly of home base players. I was a fan of Rohr until yesterday when he made that comment before the match between SE and Egpyt. He said ‘ Nigeria don’t have stars playing in Bayern , Mancity, Liverpool and Barcelona and therefore cannot compete with Egypt, Algeria, Senegal et all. For goodness sake how can a Coach have such mentality. He stated further that the S.E class of 2000 had 3 former African footballers of the year compared to The present .The stupid man forgot that S.E made those players and not the other way round. Who was Finidi when Westerhof brought him into SE . Who was Amunike when Westerhof brought him to S.E. who were Omokachi, Okocha, Taribo when they came to SE..so you see Those players did not expose or made S.E rather S.E made them ..A good Coach is one who is adepth at spoting good talents and brings them into his team , then turn them into world class. E.g Alex Fugerson, Pep Guella, Mancini , Anceloti, Morinho and the ilks..Rohr is the biggest error and backward steps ever taken by the NFF because of his mentality

      Comments about Rohr correct. Good riddance with his low esteem of current Nigerian players. Besides he was factually wrong. How many of the 1994 team was in a top club at the time?

      However, comments about Eguavon disrespectful. Especially after the Egypt match. You can repent!
