AFCON We Are Here To Beat Super Eagles-Amadou Bakayoko

Amadou Bakayoko, a forward for Sierra Leone, has told the Leone Stars that they are in Abuja to beat the Super Eagles.

On Thursday, John Keister’s side will face the Super Eagles at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

The Leone Stars can draw inspiration from their 4-4 draw with the Super Eagles on their last visit to Nigeria in November 2020.

On that occasion, they came back from a four-goal deficit to secure a share of the spoils.

The Super Eagles will be a tough nut to crack, according to Bakayoko, but he believes they can pull off a spectacular victory this time.

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

God willing we can go out there and showcase ourselves against a tough Nigeria side.

“Helping Sierra Leone 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.

“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.”
