AFCON 2023 Qualifier: Osimhen, Musa, Lookman, 19 Others In Camp For Sierra Leone Match

Twenty-two Super Eagles players have arrived in camp for Sunday’s Group A Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 qualifier match against Serra Leone at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Liberia. The choice of Liberia as a match venue is due to Sierra Leone’s suspension from hosting international matches on their home soil.

Jose Peseiro’s men defeated Leone Stars 2-1 at the MKO Abiola National Stadium, Abuja, without fans in the stands in their last outing back in June of last year.

The fans were absent due to the one-match ban placed on the country by the world football–governing body, FIFA, over the fracas that followed the end of the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff round against the Black Stars of Ghana in March.

The Super Eagles, who currently on nine points, sit in first position on the log with three wins and one defeat.

While the Leone Stars have recorded just one win in the qualifiers and are going for a win to stand a realistic chance of reaching the 2023 AFCON slated to hold in Ivory Coast in 2024.
