  • Sierra Leone will host Benin in their final Africa Cup of Nations qualifier later this month in the Guinean capital, Conakry.
  • This comes after the CAF decision to ban the Freetown Capital crumbling national stadium from staging foreign matches until it’s up to international standards.

The SLFA says that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has approved the ‘Stade Du 28 Septembre’ as the home venue for Sierra Leone.

Group L third-place team will take on Benin on 30 March, days after their away contest at the Setsoto Stadium in Lesotho.

Meanwhile, Turkey-based defender David Simbo, former AC Milan midfielder Rodney Strasser, Alfred Sankoh, who last played for Faroe Islands side NSÍ Runavík and Iceland-based winger Kwame Quee are presently in Sierra Leone ahead of the trip to Lesotho.

Nigeria leading Group L with eight points, Benin on seven while Sierra Leone, standing third with just three points from the same number of games, Lesotho first from the bottom on two points.
