AFCON 2021: Sierra Leone Vs Eq. Guinea Preview.

Sierra Leone and Equatorial Guinea clash in their last group game of the ongoing TotalEnergies Africa cup of nations at the Limbe Omnisports Stadium at 5pm. 

Sierra Leone after 26 years,  announced their presence in the AFCON with a shocking goalless draw against current champions,   Algeria on match day one.

This elevated their hopes going  the second game against the Ivory Coast on match day two. Sebastian Haller opened scores for the Ivorian,  but was cancelled by 21-year-old Musa Noah Kamara. Nicolas Pepe restored the lead for the Elephants,  but Alhadji Kamara got a late equalizer to grab a point for his team.

 

 

With such performance,  the boys of John Keister know the task ahead when they tackle Equatorial Guinea in their last group game.

Sierra Leone now has two points,  two behind leaders the Ivory Coast.

For Equatorial Guinea,  they narrowly lost 0-1 to Ivory coast in their first game. But in the second game,  they produced one of the shocking results of the tournament,  as they defeated Algeria 1-0. Esteban Orozco scored the lone goal for the national thunders.

Coaches views (John Keister of Sierra Leone)

John Keister

 

When situations arise we call upon different approaches. We are still developing and we don’t want to get too arrogant about it and hopefully,  we can do well in the next encounter against Equatorial Guinea.

Equatorial Guinea coach Juan Micha Obiang

We defeated Algeria,  the best national team in Africa,  but we will stay on earth.  We will play against Sierra Leone,  a brave team, and we will put all the chances on our side. What happens on the field is what counts. Our strength is the collective spirit.
