Osman Kakay may miss Sierra Leone, Lesotho Afcon showdown

  • Sierra Leone will travel to face Group L bottom side Likuena of Lesotho at Setsoto Stadium in a week time, but a game in one of the countries in the UK’s red list is a concern.

Queens Park Rangers defender, Osman Kakay, has been a key player in coach Keister’s squad in recent Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches.

All arrivals into the UK from outside the red-listed countries must quarantine for 10 days, a requirement that will rule Kakay from making an immediate return to his Championship side.

The right-back played the full throttle of the 1-1 first leg opener in Freetown in November 2019.

Lesotho is one of the Southern African nations, on the UK’s red list that is considered a high risk of contracting the disease.

If you have been in or through any of the countries listed below in the previous 10 days, you will be refused entry to the UK jurisdiction about the coronavirus pandemic.

However, it is still possible for Kakay who has won five capped with Sierra Leone to be included in the Benin final qualifier in Freetown later this month

The former Partick Thistle defender starts for Queens Park Rangers in Saturday’s defeat against Huddersfield.

Meanwhile, coach Keister is yet to announce his final squad for matches against Lesotho and Benin later this month.
