CAF CUP: Gambian Champions Shipped Seven Goals


By Sulayman Bah

Gambian domestic league title holders Brikama United Saturday night endured a night to forget.

The Sateba outfit got whitewashed by erstwhile African champions Raja Athletics of Morocco.

In what was a preliminary round of the Total African Champions League, the first-leg –staged in Banjul –ended 3-3 draw while the return fixture, in Rabat, had the Moroccans sailing through as winners on 4-0.

The result means the Gambians conceded a whopping seven goals in the space of just two games as Brikama became the latest outfit to fail to reach the second round qualifiers of the Africa club competition.

It was their first game in Caf after the last in 2011 in which they got booted out of the tourney by then African champions Tunis de Esperance.
