Sierra Leone CAF Confederation Cup representative FC Kallon has been eliminated by Ghanaian side Dreams FC after a 1-1 full-time scoreline at the SKD stadium in Liberia On Saturday.
Dreams took an early lead through Agyenim Boateng in the 3rd minute from the penalty spot. Kallon, who was on the verge of making history, rallied for an equaliser late on to make it 1-1 but was a little too late.
The Ghanain side won the first leg 2-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium. As a result, they made history of their own by reaching the competition group stage for the first time with a 3-2 aggregate over two legs.
They become the second Ghanaian side to have reached this stage of the competition since Asante Kotoko in 2019.
Dreams went on to qualify unbeaten against Guinean side Milo FC and FC Kallon in both preliminary matches.
No Sierra Leonean club have reached the group stage of the second-tier competition of African club football since it was introduced in 2004.
In 2004, CAF merged the African Cup Winners’ Cup created in 1975 with the CAF Cup introduced in 1992 to form a new competition called the Confederation Cup, which has since been considered the second African club competition.
