Guinea’s Sly Nationals which are one of Africa’s top teams has today been sent home by debutant The Scorpions, who are the standout team of the tournament. 

Gambian fans could be seen everywhere within Greater Banjul Area shouting “Oleh! Oleh! Oleh!” while some are honking their car horns and others using trumpets to celebrate the historic victory. 

“Celebrate beh suba,” an overexcited fan told Gambiana. 

“Heh bro…The Scorpions are going to bring this trophy,” another one said.

Others chanted the name of Musa Barrow, Gambia’s sensational player and goal scorer, who has scored twice and assisted two goals with two-man of the match awards.
