The Baby Scorpions, U20, are set to play against Tanzania in the ongoing AFCON U20 tournament at 4pm today; after they suffered a 1 nil defeat to Morocco in their opener on [date].

The boys, in their Group A opener, lost to The Lions of The Atlasa of Cameroon, through a controversial penalty awarded to them.

The penalty was saved by Gambian keeper Lamin Saidy, but the Sudanese referee Mahmood Ismail ordered a retake, making it even more controversial, which was converted to the game’s only goal.

Gambia’s U20 Coach Matarr M’Boge have frowned upon the referee’s decision saying “they were given a penalty”

Both Gambia and Tanzania lost their opening games in the competition as Tanzania were also defeated by Ghana 5 nil.

The Gambia who are making their first appearance in the tournament in a decade, is looking for their first win in the competition. That makes this game a most win for either of the sides.
