Unbeaten thus far and having overcome Guinea in the round of 16, Gambia are riding the crest of a wave.
Still, Cameroon will surely be licking their lips. While Comoros’ valiant effort in the last round was noteworthy, few would argue that facing one of the smaller footballing nations for a place in the semi-final is exactly what the hosts would have wanted.
That’s not to say it will be easy of course but the Indomitable Lions could not have asked for more favourable ties.
