Sierra Leone Coach Keister: We Must Stop Iwobi, Osimhen

Sierra Leone head coach John Keister has outlined plans to stop Super Eagles duo, Victor Osimhen and Alex Iwobi, reports Completesports.com.

The Leone Stars will be up against the Super Eagles in a matchday three encounter of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on Friday.

Osimhen has scored three goals and recorded an asssist in two outings in the qualifiers, while Iwobi has pulled the strings in midfield for the Super Eagles.

The duo are expected to be in starting line-up against Sierra Leone on Friday.

Keister, who is confident his side can beat the Super Eagles in front of their fans insists they must stop the two players to claim a win against their hosts.

“Alex Iwobi and Victor Osimhen are the two Nigerian players the coach (Keister) believe will be a big threat to us,”a reliable source close to the team told Completesports.com.

“Iwobi played really well in Nigeria’s friendly against Algeria and Tunisa, while Osimhen everyone know is a quality striker.

“The main target now is stopping the two of them. The players will have to keep a close eye on them.”

Sierra Leone occupy last position in Group L with one point from two games.

      Abeg laugh that ya turkmenistan laugh again biko…..I wan record am make I dey use am as my ring tone…..LMAO.
      I pray coach Jester succeeds in his focus on Osimhen and Iwobi alone. At least that frees up room for others to wreck havoc. On the flip side that shows how influencial iwobi has become for the SE…..one bitter pill for Iwobi’s haters to swallow. 1st it was the Brazilian technical crew who identified him as the pivot of the team, then Lesotho coach, now its the Sierra Leone coach. They must be seeing what these haters arent seeing.

        Coach Jester, LOOOOOL! The man got jokes!
        Oh yes Dr Drey, let Jester continue to obsess over Osi-net and Iwobinho. His eye will clear when he sees what the others can do tomorrow.
        🙂 🙂 🙂

    If you can stop them,good luck to you

     
  • Just don’t give them injury in the name of stopping them on the pitch

     
  • I laugh at the naivety of this Sierra Leonean coach. You are singling out just two players to stop in a team brimming with especially dangerous wingers.

    You can’t even stop those two to start with. Concentrate too much on them and you get battered by the others from left, right and centre.

     
  • What a cheap mind game… His he trying to make us believe they are the only threats he knows in the SE. Smh

    Kester my boy, I am sorry for you! You better play two banks of five in a 5-5-0 formation. Because even if you park the bus or deflate the tyres so that it can’t even get towed, fire go still catch una net tomorrow because of the onslaught that will be unleashed on the Sierra-Leone goal, mark Osimhen kò and Iwobi nì !!
