In few hours leading up to the second leg second round of the U-23 CAF championship qualifier, Footballsierraloene.net asked fans if they think Sierra Leone will go through to the third round of the competition and face Algeria.
Without a doubt, John Kamara a Sierra Leone native in Yaoundé believes that the team will overcome Cameroon young Lions after last week goalless draw.
“It really straightforward as that, the boys must not concede and try to put their opponent under massive pressure, get an early goal”
Sulaiman Conteh in Derby UK said, “The pressure could be enormous; playing both legs away from home, but the team has shown great togetherness in the first leg. I’m confident we can beat the Lions.
Alfred Coker soccer agog in the US told this medium, “Our stopper, Unisa Conteh must be at his best, the Cameroon side has a wealth of young talent that can decide the tie in a split second.”
Michael Bangura in Canada was steadfast for Cameroon. So far, the lads have done well, but let not be over excited, I will go for a 2-1 win for Cameroon they have an edge playing at home.”
“But everything is possible in football. The Sierra Leone team can easily register the victory away from home to make history,” he added.
Meanwhile, the journey to qualify for the 2016 Brazil Olympics will not be an easy task later today at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo, Yaoundé for both teams.
The 2015 CAF U-23 Championship qualifying rounds will decide the participating teams for the tournament to be hosted by Senegal.
A total of eight teams will play in the final from 5-19 December and the top three sides will represent the continent for the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil.
