Gambia Team News
Gambia will be missing Yusupha Njie, who plays for Boavista in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, after the 28-year-old attacker was given his marching orders in the encounter against Guinea last time out.
Ablie Jallow, the Metz attacker who walked off the pitch just after the hour mark in the aforementioned encounter due to injury, is a significant worry for the Scorpions, meaning Ebrima Colley might push for a return to the starting XI.
The 25-year-old defender Noah Sonko Sundberg missed the game against Guinea last Thursday after suffering a minor injury against Tunisia, and his participation is also in question.
Barrow, who scored the game-winning goal against the Syli Nationale, has been involved in all four of Gambia’s goals so far, and the Bologna man will be one to watch.
Cameroon Team News
So far, Aboubakar has been on fire for Cameroon, scoring six goals in four appearances, and we anticipate the 30-year-old attacker to lead the Senegal attack once again.
With his goal against Comoros last time out, the former Porto star surpassed Samuel Eto’o’s record of becoming the first Cameroonian to score in four consecutive AFCON matches, becoming the first Cameroonian to do so.
With that in mind, we predict a similar lineup to that of the last game, with Ekambi, Andre Zambo Anguissa, Martin Hongla, and Nicolas Moumie Ngamaleu all beginning in the middle.
Gambia possible starting XI:
Jobe; Modou, Colley, Sanneh, Tore; Marreh, Adams, Darboe; Colley, Barrow, Ceesay
Cameroon possible starting XI:
Onana; Fai, Moukoudi, Ngadeu, Tolo; Hongla, Anguissa, Ngamaleu, Ekambi; Aboubakar, Choupo-Moting
