Coach Francis Zappa Koroma is fully aware of the task ahead as his side has been in intense preparation for the double cracker.

Sierra Leone looking to reach the tournament for the first time will go toe to toe with The Les Aigles (The Eagles) of Mali in their second-round first leg at the Samuel Kanyon Doe stadium in Liberia. Kick-off at 4 pm on Saturday, August 27.

Stade du 26 Mars in Bamako will host the second leg on Saturday, 3rd September.

A 33-man contingent led by Pastor Philip Buck, chairman of the Western Football Association (WAFA), has safely in Liberia ahead of the crucial first leg.

The aggregate winner will qualify for the African Nations Championship set for Algeria in January 2023.
