Gambia mark Africa Cup of Nations debut with win over Mauritania

Gambia’s Ablie Jallow scored early as they made an impressive debut at the Africa Cup of Nations finals by beating Mauritania 1-0 in their opening Group F encounter at Limbe Stadium on Wednesday.

Jallow struck with a left-footed effort from the edge of the penalty area to put Gambia ahead after 10 minutes in their first game at the finals. There were also good second-half chances for the west African country, one of two debutants in the 24-team field for the tournament in Cameroon.
