Algeria, Gambia and Gambia train in Doha ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations
The Qatar Football Association (QFA) is hosting training camps in Algeria, Ghana and Gambia in preparation for Cameroon’s participation in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations from January 9th to February 6th. It is within the framework of a brotherhood that brings together the counterparts of different continents and other federations.
It is worth mentioning that the QFA cooperation agreements with football associations around the world have been successfully implemented over the years.
The QFA said the three teams will play several friendly matches during each camp.
Ghana belongs to Morocco, the Comoro Islands, Gabon and Group C. At the same time, Algeria will face Sierra Leone, Equatorial Guinea and Côte d’Ivoire in Group E. The Gambia will face Tunisia, Mali and Mauritania in Group F.
Following past practice, QFA has previously held training camps to prepare Algerian and Syrian teams for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers for Africa and the AFC Asian Cup 2023.
Meanwhile, Ghana held its first training session with nine athletes in Doha prior to the start of the Africa Cup of Nations. The team arrived in Doha, Qatar over the weekend and began preparing for the tournament. Coach Mirovan Reyevak nominated a provisional team of 30 people last week for a camp in Doha.
Players participating in the team’s training include Lawrence Atigizi, Richard Atta, Daniel Kofikiere, Alexander Djiku, Gideon Mencer, Fataui Sahak, David Abanya Sandam, Maxwelky and Mubarakwakaso.
Ghana will play three international friendly matches in Qatar with the aim of ending the 40-year wait for the Africa Cup of Nations trophy in Libya in 1982.
