The Gambia secured their second appearance in the Africa Cup of Nations after a tie against The Congo in earthquake-hit Marrakesh’s Grand Stade. The game took place despite a devastating earthquake that killed over 2,100 people in Morocco. The Gambia’s substitutes scored two goals, earning them the point they needed to advance. The match was played in Marrakesh because The Gambia does not have a stadium that meets international standards. Both teams’ players were traumatized by the earthquake, but the game went ahead as planned. The Africa Cup of Nations will take place in 2024.
