The head coach of Leone Stars, John Keister, has now gathered all the players he invited for the upcoming weekend’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Last week, Sierra Leone started their camp for this crucial match at the Southern Arena in Bo City, which can accommodate up to 6,000 spectators.
“The full squad of invited foreign-based players are in camp and the captain Caulker fast recovering, #LeoneStars in top gear ahead of crucial encounter against the @NGSuperEagles of Nigeria,” reads a tweet on the official Twitter handle of the Sierra Leone Football Association.
On Sunday, the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium in Monrovia will witness an exciting clash as the Leone Stars play host to the Super Eagles in their matchday five encounters. For Keister’s men, this is a crucial must-win game as they currently hold the third position in Group A with five points from four games.
The Super Eagles, on the other hand, have a more favorable position. They only require a single point from this game to secure their place in Cote d’Ivoire 2023. The stakes are high, and both teams will be eager to give their all in this crucial match.
