Boo. It would have been great for The Gambia to have got through. But it wasn't to be. The national football team are out of next February's African Cup of Nations in Ghana despite beating Algeria 2:1 at the Independence Stadium in Bakau. But the "Scorpions" have proved they can mix it with the big boys. And if you look at how many smaller African countries never even get it together to enter, or just withdraw because they can't get the players home, or can't afford the travel, then it's clear that The Gambia really does have a future. And 8 points , after all, wasn't too shabby.
