Ahead of the match-days three and four of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers between the Super Eagles and Leone Stars next month, the Leone Stars have opened their camp.
Consequently, the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has approved an initial 28-man home base team the coaches called up and they have been moved into camp in Bo City for intensive trainings ahead of the highly anticipated two back-to-back AFCON qualifiers against the former African Champions.
The Assistant Coach 1 of Leone Stars, Amidu Karim, said: “This move will help both the players and the technical team to be more focused as preparation intensifies.
”We must continue working really hard to be able to achieve the fitness that will earn us a respectable result against Nigeria. We owe this to the Nation,” he added.
Leone Stars, on Tuesday, successfully started their weeklong training sessions at the Bo City Stadium, situated along the Bo-Kenema highway.
The Leone Stars will travel to Nigeria for the first of the two legs billed for November 13 before hosting the Super Eagles four days later. The match in Nigeria takes place at the newly refurbish Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, Edo State.
