2-0 57th min. doesn't look good for the Scorpions.




Its now 3-1. There was net congestion so I did not see the last two goals. Too bad.

I was watching Momodou. Some terrible defending cost us the game. I will analyse later.

What went wrong in Burkina Faso?

Monday, October 11, 2010


Every soccer fan was happy when the Gambia's senior national team, the Scorpions, defeated Namibia by 3-1 in the CAF Orange Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers 2012 to be co-hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, in our home soil in September.

Many people referred to that effort as a good start. However, the latest heavy defeat of the team in Burkina Faso on Saturday by 3-1 has sent some chilling currents down our spines.........

Burkina Faso ease pass Gambia to climb on top

Goals from Momodou Dagado, Charles Kaboure and Wilfred Sano were enough for the Stallions of Burkina Faso to climb to the top of Group F as they enjoyed an emphatic 3-1 win over The Gambia in Ouagadougou on Saturday en route to the African Nations cup finals in 2012.

Momodou, my choice of goal keeper is not Pa Dembo and i was thinking the coach is still playing Jahateh whose performance was excellent against Senegal the last two encounters.The second goal scored by Burkina faso was not good on the goal keeper side and the defense. Jahateh was not going to sit there and wait for the ball to be centered and headed in. I am sure he was already going to be out and hit the ball or do something.
I also cannot understand why zico didn't play? Shaka, we are waiting for your analysis. Bye

Ylowe i could not but help notice the same goalkeeping lapses on the part of Pa Dembo. Infact he had similar problems in the Namibia game. Pa was a nervous wreck durring the whole 90 minutes in Ouagadougou. He it seem, could not live with the burden of responsibility that comes with wearing the captain's arm band, having been away from the international football scene for a while.. The man was simply scared to take any risk that could place him at fault in any error. His reaction to set-pieces, crosses and corners was terrible for a goalkeeper of his experience. He ocacasionallly chose to punch the ball when he could have easily caught it. He opted to stayed on his goal line as the opposition send in the ball from set-pieces and crosses, when the dodgy defence needed him to come out and help to punch the ball away from goal and from physically stronger and taller Burkinabe attackers. The home side sussed this and chucked in a truckload of crosses into the Gambia goal area and benefitted from two goals in their attempts. In essence he was a bad leader on the pitch. He does not deserve the captaincy on that performance.

However Pa Dembo was not the only criminal in defense. The whole back line did not turn up, with the exception of Omar Jawo. I think its is about time Paul Put considers dropping Abdou Jammeh alias T-Boy from the squad and look for other alternatives because he is a spent force. He had not played club football since being released by Lierse at the end of last season and his concentration level is very poor. He was especially at fault with the first goal when he was turned inside out and beaten by the Burkinabe striker to slot in the first goal. He displayed similar lack of contenration and pace in the match against Namibia even though luck was on our side that day. Pa Saikou Kujabie is in a similar predicament as T-Boy. I was shocked to realise that he had been released by FSV Frankfurt even though he was arguably one of their best players in the second half of last season and scoring two or three goals from left back. I never realise this until Paul Put mentioned the other day that he had trouble securing a visa for him, T-Boy and the two Gambia based goalkeapers for the Belgium training camp. His trouble with his former club might have something to do with his religious beliefs. He had been fasting and struggling for form when the club was terribly struggling at the bottom of the table in the first half of the season in the German second tier, much to the disgust of his coach and club officials. They only barely managed to avoid relegation. It is time some footballers realise that they are professional players and are not hired and payed for their religious beliefs if they want to prolong their career in professional football, especially if you are offered only a one year contract with an option of more years if you prove yourself worthy of a place in the squad like Pa Saikou was. He had probably blown the best chance of his football career. In the game against Burkinafaso he was terribly exposed for lack of match fitness and pace. The amount of crosses that came from his flank in the first half was real cause for concern as he was repeatededly beaten by the Burkinabe right winger. I was not surprised that he was hauled off in the second half. If his predicament continues as it is, without him finding a club before The Scorpions next game, it would not be unwise to look for anlternatives. Pa Modou Jagne can easily slot into that position. Kebba Ceesay also had an evening to forget at right back as he was terrorized by the Burkinabe flying winger Wilfried Sanou. He struggled for pace as Sanou enjoyed a good evening. The Burkina defence and midfield took advantage of Ceesay straying away from his position on numerous occasions to send long balls down the right flanks to an unmarked Sanou who wasted no time whipping in some dangerous crosses into the Gambian goal area where if not for some poor finishing by the Burkinabe strikers Gambia could have easily conceded six to seven goals. Even when Kebba was in position he was beaten too easily by Sanou. Ceesay was also one of the main culprits of the first goal, trying to dribble instead of clearing an Aziz Corr Nyang back pass, eventually losing the ball to the Burkinabes who whip in the telling cross resulting in the goal.

I will come back with the rest later.
