Sierra Leone’s CHAN Algeria 2023 Cup of Nations campaign is in peril after they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Mali at the SDK stadium in Liberia on Saturday.

Les Aigles (The Eagles) national B side scored in both halves of the game as they took a vital away victory into the second leg of the final round.

Thanks to Hamidou Sinayoko’s 23-minute opener and Ousmane Kamissoko’s 47th-minute goal as they took control of the qualifiers.

The visitors were fully aware of the task ahead as they were aggressive from the kickoff. Sierra Leone grabbed a chance of reaching the African TotalEnergies African Nations Championship after Musa Noah Kamara’s last-gasp goal in the 91st minute to make it 2-1 in the Liberian capital.

Coach Francis Zappa Koroma’s men must be on top of gear if they are to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit next Saturday in Bamako.

Stade du 26 Mars to host both nations in the return fixture on 3rd September and the aggregate winner will qualify for the African Nations Championship billed to hold in Algeria in January 2023.
