Gambia emerged champions after a shocking 2-1 over host Liberia in the final on Sunday at a packed Samuel Kanyan Doe sports Complex in Monrovia.

The Junior Scorpions went up as early as the third minute through Adama Jammel who made the most of a blunder by the Liberian goalkeeper to silence the home crowd.

The homers had to wait till five minutes after recess to draw level. Jeremy Sengbeh connected from a corner to even the scores and get the host crowd back on to their feet.

On 67 minutes, Jammel capitalized on yet another defensive blunder by the Liberia rear to slot home the match winner.

The host took consolation in Allen Njie being named Most Valuable Player of the tournament and Ivorian forward Diabate Yalatif as top scorer.

Meanwhile, Mali beat Cote d’Ivoire 1-0 to claim bronze courtesy a Moussa Gary goal.
