Suffian Kalokoh has won the 2019 West African Football Union (Wafu) Zone A Under-20 Championship Golden Boot award with his six goals for Sierra Leone during the tournament.

The AIK Freetong player on loan to Bo Rangers was instrumental throughout the tournament. He was virtually guaranteed the prize ahead of Saturday’s third-place contest against The Gambia.

He scored his first international hat-trick as Sierra Leone beat 10-man Mauritania 3-1 in match the day of the competition before another brace to help Sierra Leone down host Guinea en-route to the semi-finals.

Kalokoh scored six goals ahead of all the strikers from the eight representing Countries and was named Man of the Match after his three goals against Mauritania. 

The young attacker scored his first international goal on his debut against Liberia at the 2019 Wafu Nations Cup in Senegal in September.

Kalokoh finished behind Musa Tombo and Baimba Sesay as the third-highest goal scorer with 10 goals, while playing for Old Edwardians last season in the Sierra Leone Premier League. 

Meanwhile, the Shooting Stars of Sierra Leone were defeated by the Gambia 8-7 on penalties after a goalless 90th minute of good youth football action at the September 28 stadium in Conakry Guinea.
