The Gambia women national are through to the second round of the TotalEnergies Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier with a 3-1 aggregate over Sierra Leone.

Having won the first left 2-0, the Female Scorpions played to a 1-1 draw with their counterparts at the multi-purpose Independence Stadium in Bakau on Monday. 

The host team took the lead in the 24-minute through their Spanish based player Fatoumata Kanteh, but Sierra Leone rallied to draw parity via a Zainab Macauley 54th-minute goal.

The Gambian ladies who won the first leg at the Antonette Tubman Stadium will face the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon in February.

It was inevitable that the Sierra Leone women’s national team was facing a tough task trying to overturn the two-goal deficit a week ago.

Meanwhile, Cameroon completed the double over the Central African Republic to progress to the second round of the TotalEnergies Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Yaounde on Sunday, October 24.

The Indomitable Lionesses went through after winning both legs 3-0 aggregate
