Sierra Stars opened their TotalEnergies U-17 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers for WAFU (Zone A) tournament with a comprehensive victory. Their next match will be against neighbours Liberia on Wednesday.

Daniel Deen Sesay, who was awarded the Man of the Match trophy by the competition technical officers, scored in the 11th and 32nd minute, respectively.

Abu Bakarr Bangura completed the victory for Sierra Leone in the 48th minute as they await Liberia for their final group contest. 

A good chance for Sierra Leone, a win against Liberia, will see them to the next stage. The two finalists are to compete in the U17 tournament in Algeria in 2023.

As a reminder, across all national levels, Sierra Stars remain the only Sierra Leone side to have participated in a FIFA competition after their impressive performance in the 2003 U-17 African qualifiers hosted in Swaziland and qualified for the World Cup finals in Finland alongside Nigeria and Cameroon under the guidance of former Sierra Leone International Musa Kallon.
