A total of 15 foreign based is now expected for the Sierra Leone decisive encounter against the Falcons of Jediane, Sudan instead of 13 initially reported.

Sesay, 22, who in January signed for the English League Two side in an 18-month deal has played twice for Sierra Leone, including helping them to a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw against Cameroon during qualifying for the 2015 African Nations Cup.

Kamara, 28, was banished for three weeks due to fears over the Ebola virus by former Greek club PAS Lamia following his return from Cameroon.

Meanwhile, Sudan will engage Kenya today in a friendly match scheduled for Nairobi at the Moi International Sports centre Kasarani in preparation for their crunch Afcon 2017 qualifier against Sierra Leone in eight days.
