Sierra Leone’s head coach, John Keister has announced a Twenty-one (21) man sqaud for both the away and home matches in Kumasi and Freetown on the 11th and 15th October respectively.
Included in the squad are two home based and two unattached and the rest are foreign based players.
“This is the squad we believe will make the difference and give us the required results. There is going to be few changes to the squad that played Ethiopia and that is because we are playing a different team,” John Keister said.
Mustapha Bundu, who is plying his trade in Denmark with AGF Aarhus finally gets a chance to showcase his talent as he received his first international call up. The youngster is expected to make his international debut and be part of the future Leone Stars.
Skipper Umaru Bangura and George Davies returned to the squad while Queen Park Rangers defender, Osman Kakay and Bristol City young goalkeeper, Alhaji Sesay maintained their place in the squad.
Alfred Sankoh, Alhassan Kamara, Mohamed Medo Kamara and Gibrilla Wobay get another chance to impress despite both has been without a club.
However, there hasn’t been any change to the squad that was defeated 1-0 by Ethiopia in Awassa save for Hassan Sesay, who lost his place in the final 21-man squad.
“Hassan Sesay was left out for both matches because we needed very young full backs in the squad. Players that could make the difference from what happened in Ethiopia,” the coach added.
