Gambian Footballer drowned in Migrant Boat

The 19-year-Old Goalkeeper of Gambia’s National Women’s Football Team has drowned in the Mediterranean trying to reach Europe.

The Country’s Football Federation says Fatim Jawara was on board a boat that ran into trouble last month while crossing from Libya to Europe,

Jawara made her debut with the National Women’s side a year ago, after playing in the Junior Team.

In a Facebook Post, the federation said the manner in which she had died was “Shocking”.

The coach of the red scorpions, a local team she played in, described Fatim as a very lovely person who always smiled.

She said she was not aware of Jawara being frustrated but added that Red Scorpion Players were not paid salaries.
