Fujairah Stadium to host Sierra Leone, Algeria test

Sierra Leone national A team, Leone Stars, are set to engage Algeria’s national B side inย the United Arab Emiratesย at the Fujairah Club Stadium on Saturday.ย 

Kickoff is from 19:00 local time (15:00 hours in Sierra Leone) – it is the third preparation match for Leone Stars in just under two months.ย 

After two difficult results in their last outings against South Africa and DRC, the Leone Stars will be in the hunt to bounce.

After two difficult results in their last outings against South Africa and DRC, coach John Keister’s side is to continue their groundwork ahead of next year’s Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sรฃo Tomรฉ and Prรญncipe.

The Algerians, on the other hand, are preparing to host the 2022 African Nations Championship.

Coach Keister will use the match to assess the depth of his squad, as any of the four new faces could make their Sierra Leone debut.

Jay Tee Kamara from Columbus Crew II, Mbabane Swallows midfielder Mohamed Kabia, US-based attacker Rodney Michael and Mohamed Kamara are all in line to make their Sierra Leone debut.

It’s worth mentioning that Sierra Leone marked their return to the Africa Cup of Nations after more than two decades with a deserving goalless draw with the senior Desert Warriors side in Cameroon at the Japomaย Stadiumย in Douala on January 11, 2022.ย

Kallon braces for toughest challenge in coaching career

Kallon braces for toughest challenge in coaching career

FC Kallon boss Mohamed Kallon is set to face a huge challenge of his coaching career when the club he owns squares up against Egyptian side FC Future in their CAF Confederation preliminary second-round second leg on Sunday in Egypt.

The 43-year-old was able to mastermind first round 4-0 aggregate consecutive victory overย Les Buffles du Borgouย of Benin.ย 

However, after their first leg 2-0 defeat against Egyptian side FC Future in Liberia, the ex-Inter Milan striker now faces a massive test to overturn the scoreline.

The Egyptian side Future FC took a brilliant first-leg advantage against Sierra Leone’s FC Kallon after a 2-0 win at the SDK stadium in Liberia last Sunday.

As a result, they are within touching distance of a place in the African Confederation Cup next stage.

The former Inter Milan and Monaco forward told Journalist Fajah Barrie: “We’re going to play an open match in Cairo in the return leg – anything can happen in football.”

Kallon’s elder brother, Musa, a member of the Cavaliers technical team, said: “We lost because of naivety and inexperience, but all is not lost. We are going to fight hard to overturn the result in Cairo.”

Fifteen years ago, FC Kallon eliminated Nigerian side Ocean Boys 1-0 on aggregate in the African Champions League preliminary after both sides played to a goalless draw in Nigeria.

The Cavaliers were eliminated by Ivorian Champions Asec Mimosa 3-1, who won both matches to progress.

In the 2012 CAF Confederation Cup, FC Kallon eliminated Cameroon’s Union Sportive de Douala in the preliminary but faced stiff competition against Nigerian Warri Wolves. They won 2-0 on aggregate in the first round.

Horoya debut for keeper Mohamed Kamara in win over Djoliba AC

Sierra Leone International Mohamed Kamara made hisย Horoya ACย debut in a 2-1 win over Djoliba AC in the opener of the West Africa Champion’s Cup on Sunday.

The first edition of the West Africa Champions Cup started at the Yorokoguia sports complex with two Guinean clubs involved as Horoya AC defeated Djoliba AC of Mali. Soar Academy suffered a 2-1 defeat to Casa Sport of Senegal.

On the synthetic turf of Yorokoguiya, goals from Mohamed Djibo Wonkoye and Alseny Soumah were enough for the host team.

Kamara, 23, was named in the Guinean Champions’ starting eleven as they kickstart their four-team pre-season tournament.

The Sierra Leonean sensation of the 2021 African Cup of Nation joined Horoya Athletic Club on a two-year deal in May 2022.

Djoliba AC took the lead shortly before the break. The Malians scored from a good combination in the 42nd before Horoya AC, through Mohamed Djibo Wonkoye, levelled the scoreline in the 44th minute.

In the second half, Alseny Soumah scored the winner for the home side and despite the revolt of Djolba AC, the Matamkas remained calm for the rest of the game.

Mohamed Djibo Wonkoye was elected Man of the Match by the organizers.

Horoya AC โ€“ Djoliba AC: 2-1
Casa Sport โ€“ SOAR: 2-1
