FC Kallon set for Dreams Confederation Cup first leg

Sierra Leone CAF Confederation Cup representative for the 2023/24 competition, FC Kallon, departed Liberia for Ghana to face Dreams FC in the Second round first leg on Friday.

The Accra Sports Stadium is set to host this contest between the two West African clubs.

Having reached the competition’s second round without kicking a ball following the withdrawal of AS Douanes, Kallon will look to surpass last season when they were eliminated in this stage by FC Future of Egypt.

The club’s owner and head coach, Mohamed Kallon, confirmed their departure on Facebook; ” Kallon departs Liberia Airport for Ghana to engage Dreams FC on Friday, 15th September, 2023, in the CAF Confederations Cup Second Preliminary Round, first leg Qualifier fixture in Accra, for a spot into the group stage.”

The former Inter Milan and Monaco was the coach of his club (FC Kallon) in the CAF inter-clubs Confederation Cup last September when they progressed to the second qualifying stage of the competition. 

Under his guidance, they eliminated Buffles de Borgou of Benin 4-0 on aggregate – but they suffered a heavy defeat to the Egyptian side FC Future over the two legs in the second preliminary round.

Dreams reached this stage of the competition with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Milo Fc of Guinea.

Sierra Leone end AFCON campaign with Guinea-Bissau defeat

The Djurtus Wild Dogs of Bissau defeated Sierra Leone 2-1 on Monday at the Estádio 24 de Setembro to wrap up the AFCON 2023 qualifiers.

Coach John Keister’s side started brightly as they capitalised on an early six-minute chance scored by Dundee‘s striker Amadou Bakayoko, assisted by Emmanuel Samadia.

However, the home side, Guinea-Bissau, rallied from a goal down to a 2-1 victory in their final Group A campaign at the Stade du 24 Septembre.

Nito Fernando de Lacerda Gomes and Franculino Djú’s goals in the 35th and 48th minutes, respectively, were enough for the home fans to celebrate another AFCON qualification win.

As a result, the win was the icing on the cake on their qualification to next year’s continental showpiece. 

There were a couple of changes from the Sierra Leone technical bench, including seventeen-year-old Sallieu Bah making his International debut.

Despite the defeat, the Sierra Leone Football Association president, Thomas Daddy Brima, has this to say about the young talented midfielder Bah’s debut.

“Sallieu Bah (17), made his debut for the Sierra Leone National Senior Team today and showed class, confidence and pure talent against Guinea Bissau. It was so much joy watching this young lad. The future is indeed bright for him and many of his kind in Sierra Leone.”

Nigeria thrash Sao Tome to wrap up qualifiers on high

Napoli’s hitman Victor Osimhen bagged a hat-trick as Nigeria wrapped up their TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign with a 6-0 thrashing over Sao Tome on Sunday.

As a result, the Super Eagles sealed their place at the top of Group A with 15 points, scoring 22 goals in the six matches of the group.

The Super Eagles proved too strong for São Tomé and Príncipe as Victor Osimhen scored the opener in the 13th minute.

He completed his hat trick with goals in the 69th and 79th minute, respectively, to end as the qualifier’s top scorer with ten (10) goals. 

Ademola Lookman added a second with a neat finish before Osimhen netted a penalty after the break to put the result beyond doubt before Taiwo Awoniyi and Samuel Chukwueze also got in on the act as Nigeria ran riot.

Group A’s second-best team, Guinea-Bissua’s Djurtus Wild Dogs, will host Sierra Leone on Monday at the Estádio 24 de Setembro to wrap up the qualifiers.
