The Scorpions are looking to a back-to-back appearances in the tournament.

Chad on the other hand have never participated in the Africa Cup of Nations in their history.

Wednesday’s game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two nations. While Chad have been out of action since 2020, Gambia have flourished of late under Belgian manager Tom Saintfiet, rising 25 places in the most recent FIFA rankings.
