Charlton Athletic rocked by Sierra Leone’s Bakayoko brace

Sierra Leone’s Amadou Bakayoko scored twice to help a late Coventry City turnaround at the Valley in a Sky Bet League One match on Saturday.

Lyle Taylor’s penalty had the home side ahead at the interval, but a brace from substitute Amadou Bakayoko was all that matters to see the visitors returning to the Midlands with all three points.

Bakayoko scored his third of the season in the last 10 minutes with the winner coming in added-time.

The former Walsall man nipped in to head home in the first minute of added-time and sentence the South Londoners to their first home defeat since August.

The 22-year-old, who joined the Sky Blues on a two-year deal scored 18 times over the course of the last two seasons for Walsall.

He was in the initial list of players named by Sierra Leone coach John Keister for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches but pulled out of the squad.

  1. When Sierra Leonean footballers are playing in British and European teams, they excel unlike when they are put together to do the same for their country.
    What is the problem? Is it the situation whereby they are not treated properly. Bad subsistence and late or no payments. Money, money but where has it gone.
    The FIFA has suspended the SLFA for government interference and fraud. We need to know more about the underlying matter. FIFA must publish the full gist of the matter. We must grapple with all those underlying problems such that all the organisations will be invigorated to fight this fraud and corruption.
    The President and Cabinet must endeavour not to get into the habit of the former APC Government to think that the offices and institutions and subjects they govern are their personal property. The President must elect suitable officials to those positions. Most of these officials are incompetent and dishonourable. The President must be in a position to weed out and sack officials whom are not competent for their offices. Officials whose performances have not been of good report must not be allowed to hold further public offices.
    I was absolutely livid when I read and heard about a Minister of the Interior disrespecting the Worshipful Mayor of Freetown, who happened to be a lady. What is more infuriating is that he is doing it in public thinking that he is in some ” fakai”. I am sure he has an office as well as Permanent Secretaries with whom he can delegate the matter to be resolved. What a shame for the SLPP Government.
