Sierra Leone Star, Bakayoko: We Are in Abuja To Beat Super Eagles

Sierra Leone forward Amadou Bakayoko has warned the Leone Stars are in Abuja to beat the Super Eagles, reports Completeesports.com.

John Keister’s side will slug it out with the Super Eagles at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja on Thursday.

The Leone Stars can take inspiration from their last visit to Nigeria in November 2020, where they held the Super Eagles to a 4-4 draw.

They rallied back from four goals down to earn a share of the spoils on that occasion.

Bakayoko reckoned the Super Eagles will be a tough nut to crack, but he is confident they can claim a famous win this time around.

“Without doubt playing against Nigeria will be my first proper match for Sierra Leone. Something I am looking forward to, but both Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau are no easy games,” Bakayoko told footballsierraleone.net.

“God willing we can go out there and showcase ourselves against a tough Nigeria side. Helping Sierra Eone reach the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast 2023 will be massive, personally for me, my country and all of us players working so hard to give our best.

“Making the next African Cup of Nations is something as a player i want to be part of and will be unbelievable for me to play in the Ivory Coast for the first time.

“The last competition, I was not part of but I watched the team play well hence why it will be pivotal for us to be in the Ivory Coast tournament.”

    People always think they have potential, until they discover they don’t have,and that what they had was illusion

    Impossible is nothing in football. Yes, it is possible but I won’t blame you but Oga Rohr and Mr. Eguavoen.

    If it wasn’t because of the two coaches messing around with our national team, you won’t be talking like this Bakayoko .

    I am highly delighted that both Oga Rohr and Mr. Eguavoen were sacked in the end.

    No team fear Super Eagles in Africa anymore because CAR came to Lagos Nigeria to beat Super Eagles in front of their home fans while Ghana also made it to the world cup in Nigeria.

    Nigeria as a nation is shaking at the moment. Nothing is working. Our oppressors have taken over. Carbals have destroyed Nigeria.

    So, I can only pray for Nigeria but winning against Sierra Leone is not guaranteed. The history is there. Whenever there’s cold blood in Nigeria, we all know that Super Eagles may not have upper hand against their position.

    Well, I which the Super Eagles the best. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
