  • Sierra Leone national team on Tuesday will wrap up their training camp against the Atlas Lions homebased team at the Stade El Bachir, Mohammédia.

Houcine Ammouta’s men leading the four-nation tournament pecking order will face Sierra Leone in their last friendly match in October.

Without any exaggeration, it is expected to be an exciting contest as John Keister’s side go up against a solid and composed Moroccan home-based side who have scored nine goals in their last two games.  

The Moroccan local-based are the reigning African Champions after their 2-0 triumph over Mali at the Total African Nations Championship (CHAN) at Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde in February this year.

At senior level, Sierra Leone has never won against their counterparts in seven meetings but secured one draw during the Africa Cup of Nations Group 7 qualifiers in 2003 at the Siaka Steven Stadium in Freetown.

The North African reign supreme over the Gambia, who was heavily defeated 7-2 in their opener at the Stade El Bachir, Mohammédia last Thursday.

Morocco also defeated South Sudan 2-0, while the Bright Stars rallied to draw with the Leone Stars 1-1 after a Loki Emmanuel 93rd-minute last-gasp header.

The Atlas Lions, leading the table with seven points after two wins and Sierra Leone on four points having won against the Gambians and 1-1 draw against South Sudan.
