Tornion Pallo −47 striker Thomas Sebora Koroma has said he was happy with his first Sierra Leone experience during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations first leg qualifier against Kenya under John Keister in Freetown.
Koroma, a surprise call-up to the national team was among three new faces but was the only one to make his national debut in Leone Stars 1 nil defeat in the International Friendly in Liberia.
He was also named on the bench against the Kenyans on June 10, 2017. Delighted Koroma watched closely as his national teammates gave it all to defeat Harambee Stars at the Siaka Steven Stadium in the first Group F tie of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers.
“I was delighted to be given this glorious opportunity to be part of the Sierra Leone National team, the experience was huge.”
“A dream comes true for me, Koroma said and admitted playing for Sierra Leone will help him. “It was great for me and this experience will help me most with my confidence and build up my determination.
“I get to train with players that I have looked up to all these years, for me the national team Jersey means everything, getting to represent my country for the first time, I will forever value that moment, He told footballsierraleone.net
Koroma, 24, who started his career with local football team Banbury FC before joining the Elite Football Academy in the UK, has scored two goals in seven appearances in the ongoing Finish third tier Kakkonen division.
The centre-forward is also frustrated with the recent lack of game time at TP-47 and said: “Recently, have not started in most games and most times I play out of position. I’m a striker, who wanted to play as No. 9. I’ve only started one game this season, which is a bit frustrating.”
