played his first match for, Swiss champions, Basel as the club kicked off their preseason program.

Days after his first training session with his new club, Omar Gaber made his debut for the Swiss champions in a friendly match

Basel were playing in their first preseason match. 24 year old, Gaber made the starting lineup.

Unfortunately, his debut was soured as FC Basel lost the match 4-2. St. Gallen opened the scoring on 30 mins but Basel pulled level only two minutes later. Callà responding to the opener by Yannis Tafer.

St. Gallen added a second near the end of the first half, to go the break a goal ahead. Misery was added to Omar Gaber’s new team as they conceded at the start of the second half.

Substitute, Manzambi reduced the deficit to make it 3-2 in the 70th minute. Both teams looked for another goal and it was St. Gallen who got one. They netted the fourth in injury time to seal the win.

FC Basel next play 1860 Munich and Gaber will look to feature again. The 24 year old hopes to follow the paths of his compatriots who donned Basel colours.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
