Road to Costa Rica/Panama Preliminary Round, Return Leg
Senegal with a goal advantage over Sierra Leone
Venue Pikin Stadium in Senegal Saturday, 1st February 2020
Sierra Leone U-20 women’s national team will square off their Senegalese counterpart in the return fixture in Dakar on Saturday.
Head Coach Alhaji Foray is fully aware of the job at hand. One goal deficit a fortnight ago means the young Sierra Queens must be at their best if they to overturn the first-leg defeat.
Coach Foray, aka Abedi, is optimistic they are up for the task as his side looks to reach the next phase of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers.
“After our last training session yesterday, I was satisfied, and I believed the girls are well prepared. They ready to overturn the first leg result,” Foray told FSL News.
“I’m optimistic that this is the right time for women’s football to develop in Sierra Leone. They’re ready to surprised Sierra Leoneans. It’s time to focus on female football,” Foray aka Abedi noted.
The winner over two legs will progress to face the winner between Uganda and Tanzania in the next round.
Meanwhile, Tanzania U-20 Women’s team won the first leg after coming from a goal down to overcome neighbours Uganda in the first leg of the preliminary with Uganda hosting the return leg in Kampala on 2nd February 2020.
