The second Group F game kicks off Wednesday afternoon as The Gambia make their Africa Cup of Nations debut.
While the tournament has certainly been enjoyable so far, it would be fair to say that the goals are yet to come. It was only since the first game that we have seen more than one goal scored, which perhaps indicates the lack of preparation of many teams due to the Covid pandemic and the fact that European teams have been able to keep their players so long.
Indeed, anyone looking for goals in this one could be disappointed, even if Sierra Leone’s shock draw against Algeria gives hope for some nice surprises.
It will be fascinating to see how The Gambia adjust to life on Africa’s biggest football stage, while Mauritania will surely look to improve their performance at CAN 2019.
