Egypt, Gambia reach agreement to extend technical support
Egyptian Football Association has agreed with Gambia to extend technical support to their national teams as well as hosting them during training camps.
The two countries have reached an agreement on Friday when EFA President Hany Abou-Rida hosted his Gambian Football Federation counterpart Lamin Kabba Bajo in Cairo.
“Mr. Abo Rida has agreed to assist GFF with a Technical Assistant to assess and help develop our technical department with a view to enhancing our National Teams, both male and female and also youth football,”
“Both Mr. Bajo and his Egyptian colleague Abo Rida have agreed in principle to effect this agreement as soon as possible,” GFF statement reads.
Gambia are currently 164th in the latest FIFA ranking and have never qualified for the World Cup or even the Africa Cup of Nations despite having a huge number of foreign-based players; most of them ply their trade in European leagues.
Reading’s Modou Barrow, Mustapha Carayol of Nottingham Forest and Sulayman Marreh, who is on loan at Spanish side Real Valladolid from Watford are considered the country’s key players.
