He was among the best at the Gothia Cup, scoring a goal against Newcastle at the world’s largest international youth football tournament in Gothenburg.

Bah is described as a powerful, athletic, yet technical player. The youngster, who turned 18 April 2014, is a regular for the Hammarby FC under 19 Premier Norra League in Sweden, scoring six goals from midfield in 17 appearances both U19 and U21 competitions respectively.

He is an exceptional young player, a maturing defensive player with plenty of ability on the ball. No-one disputes his potential in the Hammarby ranks.

The former Central Parade player is working hard to break into the Hammarby Superetan squad.

Standards are high, but he is targeting to develop as a professional who will one day take the place of Mohamed Kamara, Rodney Strasser or Khalifa Jabbie at national level.

Talking to Football Sierra Leone, he said, “I see myself in the next two years to be a great footballer.

“To play for my country in any level is the happiest thing that could happen to me.”Is every player’s dream, as a citizen of Sierra Leone I will be honour.
