Sierra Leone’s senior national team coach John Keister has invited 16 overseas-based players for their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against the Super Eagles next week.
The Leone Stars will face the Eagles at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, Edo State on Friday, November 13, before hosting the three time African Champions four days later in the reverse fixture at the Siaka Stevens Stadium in Freetown.
Keister’s side occupy fourth place in Group L with just one point from two games while the Eagles lead with six points from their opening two games.
A win in both games will virtually guarantee Nigeria a spot at the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations scheduled for Cameroon ahead of their away clash to Benin Republic in Porto Novo in June and home tie against Lesotho early September.
The foreign based players invited for the double header are, Osman Kakay (Queens Park Rangers,England), Mustapha Dumbuya (Tampa Bay Rowdies USA), Alie Sesay (Zira FK, Azerbaijan), Kwame Queen (Vikigur Reykjavik, Iceland), Mohamed Medo (Kamara FC Haka, Finland) and Kelvin Wright (Orebro, Sweden).
Others include George Davies (SKN St.Polten, Austria), Mohamed Turay (Hebei China Fortune, China), Mustapha Bundu (Anderlecht, Belgium), Alhaji Kamara (Rangers, Denmark), Augustine Williams (LA Galaxy, USA), Alhassan Koroma, (Real Balompedica Linense, Spain), Ishmael Koroma (Vasalunds,Sweden), Kei Kamara (Minnesota United, USA), Rodney Strasser, (Turun Palloseura,Finland) and John Kamara (Keshla FK, Azerbaijan).
