Sierra Leone Coach, Keister: We Are Now Under Pressure To Beat Super Eagles 

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.

    Okay brilliant!the fear for the super eagles is gone,so you guys must go all out and score as many goals as you can.

    Since you conceded because you guys had respect for the super eagles,now that you don’t especially when you stood toe to toe against them,It’s expected that you win big against an inferior opponent.

    I hope after 90 mins the interview will continue and lastly,you mustn’t concede any goal because you no longer fear the eagles.

    • Hahahaha sounds interesting it’s not his fault, but a score line of 4:0 and above would shut him up….

    Eagles should beat them silly to prove that Eagles are not in the same level with them. The coach is too proud…

    CSN is a funny blog which everyone hails the Algerian national team and their coach for being tactical sounds and many more , but nobody is talking about Algeria playing a 2-2 draw with Zimbabwe despite leading the score-line with 2-0 ( first half ).

    Zimbabwe is also ranked 111 in the world . Hence nobody should talk about the Algerian Coach being superior tactically because football is not Mathematics


    Naija i Hail thee

    God bless Nigeria

      Quiet your mouth then why did Rohr loose to him the second time running. Some of you just come here to debate instead of speaking in favor of national interest.

        @Chima E Samuels .. I could have easily insult you and everything about you with your response ( Quiet your mouth ) cos every reaction deserve an action and vice versa , But i won’t stoop so low to your mud and trade abusive words with you rather i would teach you cos you deserve to learn how to communicate on public domains . First loosing to him the second time running doesn’t implies he’s a better coach ( Spain lost to Ukraine , Germany drew Switzerland , Croatia lost to Sweden and Uruguay won a power team Colombia by 3-0 ) Liverpool lost to Aston Villa by a wide margin this season EPL . It doesn’t implies Liverpool , Spain , Germany , Croatia and Colombia are bad teams or have an average coach , It simply implies You don’t win all in life as Life itself is topsy-turvy .

        Nevertheless SE is poor regarding the last match against the Lone stars and the Coach , Players and Technical crew are all to blame for the Draw .

        The only way for the team ( the coach and technical crew inclusive ) to redeem itself is by winning by a big margin perhaps 3-0 minimum or even 2-0 .

        God bless Nigeria

        @ Chima E Samuel. the theme of NA ME TALK AM post is that these things can happen in football, so we shouldn’t make huge mountain outta mole hill about it. I, very well agree with him. Personally, my only disappointment against Rohr on that match, wwas wrong line up selection, hence despite Nigeria leading 4-0 in the first 35min, I just wasn’t celebrating. I kept asking the rationale behind not playing Ola Aina instead of Akpoguma. Therein was the only blunder Rohr committed on that faithful day. That single action alone contributed to that woeful outcome and was how Rohr shot himself on the foot. Even if had won, he would still have been critisized, so whatever slagging Rohr is getting today, is definitely not because of the scoreline, as such results have always been periodic experience in the football fraternity. But now, is that enough for us to destroy and crucify Rohr at this point of our SE preparation, I will emphatically beg to disagree. Rohr stil remains my most favoured to lead us to both the world cup and Afcon. For until after both, before we make a decision about retaining or discarding him. Sometimes nigerians are too blinded to imagine Nigeria is like the UK, USA, GERMANY, FRANCE etc where things runs smoothly with little or no administrative lapses. How decieving is that imagination, reason we almost forever go in circle. Going down memory lane, every manager both local and foreign, Nigeria have hired over the years have suffered this kinda ridicule and sure gonna continue with the next. Our national teams two major problems are FOOTBALL ADMINISTRATION AND FANS. Those self serving criminal football agents are always taking advantage of the problems those two constantly bring, to destabilise our NATIONAL TEAMS.We open the door, they come in and rip our national teams apart, all for their selfish gain, as that is all that matters to them. SO WE MUST BE CAREFUL WITH OUR CRITISICM OF ROHR.

    I am actually hoping we lose today. Cos sometimes it’s better to sacrifice immediate happiness for the greater good. If we fail to qualify, Rohr gets kicked out, hopefully someone like amuneke replaces him and Nigeria move forward

      @Okpuite your prayers won’t be answered. We will win today

  • No continue by the way who told u using Akpobona as right back was the reason for the draw? If Aina had played that day the result could have still be the same same way it was Okoye in goal not Akpeyi supposing it was Akpeyi u guys will still blame him. That is Nigeria even your sports minister that suppose to have brain see the way he talked as if he is minister of football hitting up the polity when u know there is important matches coming up in few days.
