The Gambian lawyer has been very supportive of the Gambian national football team – the Scorpions – since the beginning of AFCON 2021. Gambia’s debut match was against Mauritania. During Gambia‘s match against Mali, Essa Faal congratulated the team after gaining four points although the game ended at a draw (1-1).

With four points already secured, the Scorpions have qualified for the second round of the Africa Cup.

Although one of the team’s stars players has an injury, the Scorpions are hopeful that they will do well in this year’s AFCON as they look forward to Essa Faal’s gift to Gambian players ahead of their match against Tunisia.
