Head coach of Sierra Leone national team, John Keister, says his Leone Stars side are now under pressure to beat the Super Eagles and prove Friday’s result was not a fluke.
The Leone Stars came from four goals down to draw 4-4 draw against the Super Eagles at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Friday.
Keister, who played for Sierra Leone in their famous 1-0 win over the Eagles in Freetown in 2001 says they must now prove that Friday’s result was not a one-off.
“We are looking forward to it,” Keister told www.aclsports.com.
“We are now under pressure because of the result we achieved in Nigeria and the onus is on us to prove it is not a fluke.
“I think we gave them a lot of respect at the start, that’s why we conceded four goals, when we came out bolder, we scored ours. Now we have to come out and play on our home turf,” the 50-year old added.
A win for the Leone Stars will take them to five points and just two points behind the Eagles who top Group L.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
