Inform Striker Alie Conteh recorded a brace as Sierra Leone kick-off Chan 2023 qualifiers with a 2-0 win over their Cape Verdean counterparts at the Marrakech Stadium on Sunday.
Alie Conteh scored a brilliant solo goal in the 69th-minute second half to ensure his side took charge of the first leg of the qualifiers after his first in the 15-min first half.
The home-based Leone Stars will square off against the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, at the same venue in the return leg.
Head Coach Francis Zappa Koroma was pleased with his side’s overall performance.
“We are pleased as a technical, but we have to finish the job on Wednesday and regroup for the next phase of the competition,” the former International told FSL news a few minutes after full time.
The winner on aggregate between the two sides will face 2020 Chan runners-up Mali in the second round, which is the final stage of qualifying later this year.
Morocco won the last competition for the second time after overcoming Mali 2-0 in a thrilling final at Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde on February 7 2020, in Cameroon.
The final tournament is slated to be played in Algeria from 8–31 January 2023.
